Windows 10 1803+ no longer creates backup copies of the registry (on Feedback Hub)

The RegIdleBackup scheduled task no longer creates backup copies of the registry hives in the RegBack folder. This is a major blow to the Windows emergency restore abilities. Think of [forum] support when the OS won't boot and the restore points won't work.

 

Check in #PowerShell:

Get-ScheduledTask regidlebackup | Get-ScheduledTaskInfo
dir c:\windows\system32\config\regback
