Windows 7: Backup Reset Not working completely.

Backup Reset Not working completely.

I have 1tb HHD, and connected it to take backup as I'm facing some BSOD problem. But during backup BSOD death occurred and backup process halted. I restarted it but didn't showed progress so I aborted it. After disconnecting my external hhd still it shows Backup in Progress. So to reset it I downloaded that Reset.reg key and ran it. It did partial work, my backup status is in default state but Action center still shows Backup in progress"
Now how to reset this so that I can take new Windows backup?

Hello Tusharpatil,

Are you able to do a Windows Backup? If so, that should clear it when it's successfully finished.
