This article applies to:
You open Task Manager (Ctrl-Shift-Esc), and notice that afcdpsrv.exe process consumes 99% of CPU.

- If you enable Acronis Nonstop Backup after it was disabled for a period of time during which there was a considerable amount of changes (e.g., there were new applications installed);
