    Windows 7 has the capability for backup the user data files and system data files. This is default setting in windows 7(64bit), but if you need to change that then you can disable it. If you donít want that your system makes the backup of the data files then go with the steps given below, to change this default setting you need to change the local group policy editor to change the setting:
    • Click on the start button and type gpedit.msc to run menu and press enter. Local group policy will be loaded.
    • On the left side of the screen, press as Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components >Backup >Client.
