Enable the backup function in Windows 10

Enable the backup function in Windows 10

A few months ago, Microsoft announced that Windows 10 would no longer receive “major” updates with new features and major changes. However, Microsoft continues to provide monthly updates for Windows 10 through Patch Tuesday in addition to optional non-security builds. So, sometimes, despite the company’s announcement, these updates bring some change or new feature.

This month’s Windows 10 update brought a new Windows Backup app that Microsoft introduced for Windows 11.

Users have discovered a surprising change in File Explorer which now has a new button for backing up documents, photos, downloads and more.

Clicking the button launches OneDrive and the Back up your important computer folders to OneDrive feature, ensuring your files are always synced to OneDrive.

Microsoft has not yet announced a new Start Backup button. However, you can enable it on your Windows 10 operating system by doing the following:

Right-click the OneDrive icon in the notification area, and then click Settings.
In the About tab, select Get OneDrive Insider Preview updates before release.
Download KB5029331 from Windows Update or From the Microsoft Update Catalog (manual installation).
After installing the update, make sure you have the latest version of OneDrive.

Then download ViVeTool from GitHub And extract the contents of the zip file to any folder.

NB: We recommend backing up your important data and creating a system restore point before using ViVeTool.

Open a command prompt window as administrator (find cmd – right click on the black icon – open as administrator) and navigate to the folder containing the ViVeTool files with the cd command.

For example, if the ViVeTool files are located in the C:\vive folder, issue the command:

CD C:\lives.

Then type vivetool /enable /id:40950986 and press Enter.

Restart your computer.

Then open File Explorer (Win + E) and open the Documents, Pictures, Videos or Music folder. You’ll see a new Start Backup button on the Home tab.
