Windows 7: Win 7 x64 System Restore hogging HDD access

25 Apr 2013   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium x64
Win 7 x64 System Restore hogging HDD access

Laptop; Windows 7 Home Premium; x64; 240GB HDD/52.9GB used.

Problem: System Restore constantly accesses HDD at or near 100% level. (see attached screen shots of Resource Monitor)

*SR works normally in Safe Mode
*Have tried New Account with nothing else running in the background; still SR is a HDD hog
*SR says it actually creates a backup file, so it's working properly, I assume, in that fashion
*System Volume Information file(s) are created and accessed; Multiple background and normal mode(s) are seen in screenshots; Multiple SVI files are seen with various title numbers

As I've searched for answers to the prroblem, I've noted that MS has no links nor advice for this/these symptoms on their help blogs.

Thank you for your help, in advance!
