I noticed something yesterday, windows 8.1 has no windows backup? The service exists but NTLite does not detect the component. In Windows 7 and 10 this is detected.

Whats the service called? I cant find backup on 8.1 EI Pro.
Block Level Backup Engine Service (wbengine)

Another component that is not detected is Storage Spaces. This one I'm sure is in the control panel.

The name of the service is: Microsoft Storage Spaces SMP (smphost)

I got Storage Spaces in Control Panel and Services. Ping nuhi, see what he says :)

Control Panel:


There is a service for disabled functionality, Microsoft's way of doing things o_O
