Registry backup is disabled but backup status shows "backed up". They did it to save space. 50-100mb.
Microsoft, the company that downloaded a full operating system without your knowledge ("why did W7 auto download W10 on my 3G connection, stole 11gb both from my harddrive and wireless quota") disables a critical function to save 100mb.

When you put it that way... good point.

I don't believe that this minor change woudl have saved any space. It's a registry backup. They're not that big. They could stop adding start button craplets to save space, if they were serious. I think it's a bug someone missed, until now.

This is so (small) businesses can't easily fix/restore things in case of trouble, but have to call M$$$ or an 'approved M$-licensed company' to fix it.

And attacking your right to repair. They are taking tips from Apple and John Deere. One more thing to fight.

Considering W10's considerable footprint on hard-drive space, this comes off as a piss-poor excuse. Not that I care about Windows; I've been using Linux since 2002(Knoppix was my introduction and I was amazed that an entire OS could run from a CD) and I haven't looked back. But I digress.
