Aziz, I  did what you suggested. However, the little icon in the start up is still there. I don't know if the pop ups will return or not.  How do you get rid of it? I also suffer from jumping cursor... driving me crazy... but that is another problem. thanks

You're the man Aziz. I gave a presentation to a client yesterday on my laptop. Of course it "popped up" every ten seconds. Rediculous. Dell, please send Aziz a prize for taking care of this.

Dear Aziz,


This is my first time in a forum. 

Thank you so much for your solution for removal of the Dell DataSafe popup.  I've been struggling trying to use my laptop without the bottom right 10% of the screen.  Your solution worked a treat - THANK YOU.

Kind regards,


Dodger22

I see that some 4 years later, Dell has still not addressed this issue.   I recently upgraded from Windows 7 to Window 10.   All of a sudden I started getting the Dell DataSafe Local Back-up "pop - up" screen that I spent hours on attempting to get rid of it.   I didn't need it because my local internet provider, Verizon, already provides a back-up program that I pay for.

So . . . after many frustrating attempts, I called the Dell Support phone number.   I spoke to somebody that I could not understand, who then transferred me to his supervisor.   I couldn't understand him either, but all I got out of the lengthy phone call was that I could pay $138.00 for a new Dell Service agreement because my laptop purchased in 2011 was no longer under warranty.   I not so politely told him that whether I wanted to purchase it or not should not have ANYTHING to do with my wanting to get rid of the pop-up message.   I hung up after telling him that they hadn't helped me whatsoever.

I even attempted to revert to Windows 7 I was so frustrated because the Pop-up window obscures everything you're working on (i.e. Excel, Word, Internet mail, etc.)   It pops up no matter what you select (remind me later, don't remind me).   If you even attempt to do as they recommend, I would always get a "forbidden access" screen!   Very, very frustrating.

So . . . Aziz, I thank you very much for your instructions above.

Thank you so much! That was the most annoying pop up ever! Every time I clicked for it not to remind me it just came back right away. This method worked perfectly.
