If you’ve bought a new Dell recently you may have noticed one of the few software packages Dell has pre-installed for you. Dell Data Protection, Dell Client System Update and, today’s focus, Dell Backup and Recovery Manager. while useful, it is a bit redundant on windows 7 PCs that already have a backup solution built into the OS. but whats worse is a back up utility that continuously prompts you via taskbar notifications even after uninstalling said software.
The Problem: Dell Backup And Recovery Manager taskbar notification wont go away!
The Details: you’ve uninstalled the software and disabled the icon in the notification area icons section of the control panel but the icon in the taskbar remains
The Solution: right click on the taskbar icon and close the application and then
Delete this folder: “C:\dell” and restart.
