    Hi All,

    I have a weird situation I don't understand and am concerned it may due to an infection and would like some advice.

    The last two backups I performed using Acronis True Image WD edition are around twice the size as before and are around twice the size the program says the image will be when setting up the backup.

    This started in Feb of this year. I have also noticed weird behavior of my wireless keyboard and mouse- sometimes not responding immediately. I have also been having intermittent freezing of the computer when left unattended.

    I use Norton Internet Security and run Malwarebytes scan periodically but nothing has come up as a threat.

    Any ideas how to figure out what the extra space in the backups is from and should I be concerned?

    Running Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
    Acronis True Image WD edition from 2009.
