Control Android backup and restore service

This policy controls the initial state of Android backup and restore.

When this policy is not configured or set to BackupAndRestoreDisabled, Android backup and restore is initially disabled.

When this policy is set to BackupAndRestoreEnabled, Android backup and restore is initially enabled.

When this policy is set to BackupAndRestoreUnderUserControl, the user is asked to choose whether to use Android backup and restore. If the user enables backup and restore, Android app data is uploaded to Android backup servers and restored from them upon app re-installations for compatible apps.

Note that this policy controls the state of Android backup and restore during initial setup only. The user can open Android settings afterward and turn Android backup and restore on/off.
