  1. Short and to the point. Worked perfectly, thanks!

  2. Windows can now determine your active hours automatically so that backups are performed while you're not using the PC. You can also pause updates and delay feature updates for up to a year and quality updates for a month. Thank for sharing ~ Charlotte W. from software engineering
