Acronis Drive Monitor constantly starts & stops

I am working on a project where I need to have all of the Growl system notifications enabled in 'Process Hacker'. But when I do this, I am flooded with constant alerts about Acronis Drive Monitor launching (which crowd out the alerts which I actually need to see.) So I noticed that the process:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Acronis Drive Monitor\DriveMonitor\adm.exe

...is being launched by this process every 1 or 2 minutes...

C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Acronis\Schedule2\schedul2.exe

...With a corresponding flurry of disk activity.

I had no idea that ADM was working my drive so hard, and not sure I want to use it now. Furthermore, ADM does not offer to quit the service when I quit the tray application. Is all of this by design? If not, then what is the solution?

Hello A F,

what operating system is used here? This product is not developed any more and supports only the following OS https://kb.acronis.com/content/9699 

For businesses, Acronis now offers Acronis Monitoring Service instead https://www.acronis.com/business/monitoring-service/
