I'm a free user of Macrium Refect. I'm not sophisticated with it. I manually do images. That's it.
There are no scheduled jobs.
Nevertheless , the macrium service starts and runs my CPU to 20% all day which seems excessive considering nothing is happening or scheduled to happen.
When I go into Services.msc and stop the macrium service, set it to manual (default :auto) the cpu drops back to a normal idle status immediately. There is no doubt macrium is the culprit. I use windows defender for virus protection.
I would like to run macrium reflect 7 with a schedule, but I can't be installing software that runs at 20% for no apparent reason 1st or 2nd amount of cpu usage on my sys. I don't know what effect turning off the service does (other than make my cpu perform normally), or setting it to manual, presumably I can't successfully run a scheduled image backup.
With a free version of MR I can't post my question to macrium support.
Has anyone had this occur or is aware of a solution?
