    What is this process:

    Windows\System32\LogFiles\WMI\Rtbackup\EtwRTDefenderApiLogger.etl

    I see in resource manager this comes up sometimes and chews away at my HDD for a good 10 minutes. Very annoying as it loves to run while I'm trying to use my PC for other things.

    Can this be disabled?

    I don't even have defender enabled so I have no idea why this runs.

    :)

    Before we delete it, we suggest that you create a backup first, and do that just, follow the directory. See the steps below:

    • Go to C: > Windows > Logs
      > NetSetup > service.0.etl.
    • Right-click on service.0.etl and copy and paste it where the same file (service.0.etl) is saved in.
    • When pasting, add a .bak on the file name. It should be like this:
      service.0.etl.bak.

    Once, done proceed with deleting it. Still, follow the directory, this time, when you do the right-click, choose
    Delete.

    Let us know if this allows you delete the file.
     
  3. etl file

    I’ve checked the system and found System.1.etl file in disk C. I don’t know if this file is important. What can happen if I delete it?

    ETL Collector svc, What is it?

    Most likely ETL is a third party service. We recommend that you do a clean boot to your computer, it will use a minimal set of drivers and startup
    programs. After that, check if ETL service is still running.

    Let us know how it goes.
