The wbadmin,exe command still exists in Windows 10.

I'd be surprised if they stripped out the GUI and made it CMD-only since I'm sure a lot of people are still using it. It's better for on-demand backups than File History.

I've always preferred the continuous incremental method of backup (File History, Time Machine, etc.) to the big-bang one. I set up a similar system at work for our file servers, many years ago, using IBM's TSM, and was able to recover lost files for people within about 5 minutes of request. It made me very popular!

I see the merits, I think there's still a role for both. If File History had an interface to add a timed schedule as opposed to the "always on" backup drive, I think we'd have the best of both worlds.

It does. Under "Backup Options" you can choose it to back up at various intervals from every 10 minutes to once a day. If you want finer control (such as the time at which it starts) look at this thread: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/wi...

In reply to a post by Oliver341:
Windows 7 Backup still only exists in the Control Panel, so that's one thing which Control Panel still needs to exist for in Windows 10.


Is that still a thing? It was useless in the earlier version of Windows

It's possible to add a trigger to the File History scheduled task but it gets reset on every feature update, which is annoying.

I believe they only automatically install these feature updates when the version of Windows 10 the user is currently running reaches end of support.

That might have changed though.

My system was running fully updated version 1909. I only re-boot once or twice a month otherwise the PC is on 24/7. When I went to restart, the option was to update and restart. I suppose I might have been able to refuse it, not sure. Rollback was certainly an option and I'd only just imaged both my drives so I just went ahead.
