Revert the backup and restore window to "backup not set"

I run some classes for seniors, one of which is on backing up.

For Windows 7 backup program we look at at the initial setting up.
]
For subsequent classes I would like to repeat this, but have not found a way to go back to the condition of backup not yet set.

Is there a way to do this?
