Home » Microsoft changing backup schedule for Windows 10 Mobile

Microsoft is introducing a few improvements to Windows 10 Mobile wth the latest Preview build 14946. Along with other additions, Redmond is also changing the frequency of scheduled backups in Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview. From now on, your phone is going to ask you for backup once a week.

Of course, you don’t have to wait for your phone to remind you about performing a backup. You can initiate a manual backup by going to Settings > Update & security > Backup. Microsoft hasn’t changed anything in this aspect, so everything remains as it were before.

“We have changed the frequency of scheduled backups for Mobile to once a week. Initiating a backup manually by clicking the “Back up now” button remains unchanged and works as expected. You can do this via Settings > Update & security > Backup and clicking the “More options” link at the bottom. As always, it’s good to do a backup of your device before updating to a new build.”

Since installation fails and other problems often occur when installing a new build for Windows 10 Mobile Preview, it is highly recommended to back up your data before installing a new release.

Besides the altered backup schedule, Microsoft also introduces some autocorrection improvements with build 14946.

Do you backup before installing a new build for Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview or at least regularly? Tell us in the comments.
