Norton auto-protect slows down Aomei Backupper
When running Aomei, Norton jumps to 20% CPU usage during the file identification stage. The Aomei backup takes about 5 minutes.
When I disable Norton auto-protect, the backup only takes 45 seconds. The only other observation is that Windows Shadow Copy runs for a few seconds at about 10-20% CPU before Norton jumps in. I have reinstalled Norton with same results. I am running Windows 10. Any ideas on how to prevent Norton from slowing down backups? maybe whitelist Aomei?
Sonar is disabled when I disable auto-protect, so I am not sure what part of Norton is responsible for the slow down.
