Not sure it will work as you would like, since VBK will be renamed upon compact operation and to get back to the name without a timestamp, you would need to start anew (see below).

According to this KB, the value works for new jobs or jobs for which you first perform the "Remove from backups" command. Also don't forget to restart the backup server after making this registry change.
