    "Check Backup Disk Space" Error Windows 8.1

    Hello. I am having trouble with a message in Action Center in Windows 8.1. It is saying "Check Backup Disk Space" and I cannot hide the message. I had Windows 7 File Recovery setup with Windows 8.1, but now after the upgrade, the message is "stuck." Can this be fixed? These two links explain it perfectly:

    Windows 8.1 Update - Check backup disk space - Microsoft Community

    Windows 8.1, can't remove "Check backup disk space" error in action center - Ars Technica OpenForum

    Please help. Thanks.

    I was able to turn off the notifications, but it still does not change the fact that there is a problem here.
