When an Adafruit microcontroller is attached to an open USB port on a Windows 10 pc, a drive and folder "CIRCUITPY" appears in Windows 10. Programming in the microcontroller causes Python programs residing in this folder to be restarted whenever the port is touched. Its been established that if Acronis 2018 is installed, it constantly touches this port, even when Sync, Active Protection, Backup Scheduling and backup are not active, this causes the Python programs to constantly restart. Uninstalling Acronis 2018 resolves the problem.
Is it possible to disable this constant USB port touching by Acronis?
Do later versions of Acronis provide solutions to this problem?
