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?July 10, 2013 at 12:13 pm #5117
Which version and build of Disk Drill are you using? Get the latest one.January 1, 2014 at 4:26 pm #5170
I have the same issue. I just updated to the latest version: 2.1.376January 1, 2014 at 4:51 pm #5171January 1, 2014 at 4:54 pm #5172
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.January 1, 2014 at 4:55 pm #5173
(also, why do I need to solve a captcha for every comment here, even though I’m logged in. Infuriating.)January 1, 2014 at 9:02 pm #5174
lhunath, did you try to disable Guaranteed Recovery, then reset its storage, then enable it again?

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!

col000r, did you try to disable Guaranteed Recovery, then reset its storage, then enable it again?July 30, 2014 at 6:50 am #6008
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%.July 30, 2014 at 7:45 am #6009
Weird, then please send us the internal Disk Drill logs as explained here: /help/troubleshooting-basics/May 26, 2016 at 9:54 pm #6557
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 leakMay 27, 2016 at 6:21 pm #6558
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.
