Is there any way to turn off the automatic scan for backups in True Image Home 2015 and 2016 as was present in previous versions?  I have TI 2015 running on a PC that is also the target for backups from other PCs in the network, and it seems to run into regular problems building and maintaining this list of backups at the startup of scheduled backups.

Hello Marv, there is no method of turning of the scan for backups as provided in earlier versions but then with ATIH 2015 & 2016, this scan should only occur on the installation of the program and not when it is started after that point.

See https://kb.acronis.com/content/48662 for a list of changes that were made from ATIH 2015 that include this point.

This issue seems to be effecting me, backups have been running for months and now all my unused drives are being hammered by this scan. 

C: & I: should be the only drives touched, it shouldn't be going anywhere near H:

Hello Paul, thank you for writing about your experience with this feature - added the comment to the existing change request TI-59841, cannot provide any ETA for implementation, the request is still in backlog.
