    The cfbackd process is killing my laptop. This happens so much that I may need to uninstall to enable me to be able to do anything. Computer just hangs. What is it and how do I get rid of it?

    Which version and build of Disk Drill are you using? Get the latest one.

    I have the same issue. I just updated to the latest version: 2.1.376

    Seems like it’s doing a lot of HFS read stuff while Disk Drill isn’t doing anything at all. I’m very close to deleting all trace of this thing and asking for my money back.

    (also, why do I need to solve a captcha for every comment here, even though I’m logged in. Infuriating.)

    lhunath, did you try to disable Guaranteed Recovery, then reset its storage, then enable it again?

    Captcha is here to get us protected from numerous bots, unfortunately.

    cfbackd is constantly running one of my cpus at close to 100%. it never stops. Even if I have nothing else on, my laptop runs hot. This is not nice. Please fix this!

    (I’m on a Mid-2012 MacBook Pro with OS X 10.9.4 and Disk Drill 2.2.386 Pro)

    I never had Guaranteed Recovery enabled. I reset storage once a few weeks ago after I found this thread, but it didn’t help. eventually cfbackd would show up again at 100%.

    Weird, then please send us the internal Disk Drill logs as explained here: /help/troubleshooting-basics/

    Hi Guys, it sounds ludicrous to dump the recovery data to fix a fault like this. I’m finding this process chewing up swap memory and hammering my SSD. To the point the system becomes unusable and the swap file is 9-10GB in size. Like previous comments I’m about ready to dump the application completely. Yes I’ve done the things suggested and it still continues to leak

    Dear JPHale, what will be your system specs (OS X version, Disk Drill version and build number, etc.)?
    Also, have you already sent your internal log files to us? /help/troubleshooting-basics/
    Do you still experience this issue if you completely disable data protection in Disk Drill? Finally, here’s the recommendation given to you by Kim in January, I can’t find any updates from you on this: Please delete “.cleverfiles” folder and restart your Mac. Let us know if the problem persists.
