Just out of curiosity...
Coindidentally I noticed that Reflectmonitor.exe is creating and closing a registry entry 20x per second.
14:25:02,063 reflectmonitor.exe RegQueryKey HKCU SUCCESS
14:25:02,063 reflectmonitor.exe RegCreateKey HKCU\software\macrium\reflect\Settings SUCCESS
14:25:02,063 reflectmonitor.exe RegSetInfoKey HKCU\SOFTWARE\Macrium\Reflect\Settings SUCCESS
14:25:02,063 reflectmonitor.exe RegQueryValue HKCU\SOFTWARE\Macrium\Reflect\Settings\DebugLanguage NAME NOT FOUND
14:25:02,063 reflectmonitor.exe RegCloseKey HKCU\SOFTWARE\Macrium\Reflect\Settings SUCCESS
So, within 14:25:02 20x
Not sure what the purpose of reflectmonitor is. I am sure it is okay.
Macrium creates a backup each day, at first boot, differential and a full image backup every week (monday).
That is the only time it is used.
As said, just out of curiosity. Don't know if it is necessary (creating reg key etc.)

...Not sure what the purpose of reflectmonitor is...
ReflectMonitor allows a user to observe the progress of running backups. It can be called up by pressing CTRL ALT M all at once. Once a backup completes (or during the backup), you can display the last results by pressing the key combination. If the computer has been restarted since the last backup, then a blank window will display with the key combination.

Thanks a lot! I already had the feeling it would be something like that, but did not know.
But then I wonder, does it need to run all the time? As said, Reflect runs once a day only.
Checked ProcMon and it is showing roughly 390.000 x within about 4 minutes or so.
It does not impact the performance though, that is not the problem.

I'm afraid I can't answer that. Perhaps another user or a Macrium representative can help.
