    disksnapshot.exe?


    just recently i keep getting a command prompt window opening on the desktop labled"c:\windows\system32\disksnapshot.exe".
    I have ran both malwarebytes and full system scans with bitdefender and both come up clean.
    is this a virus or malware? I have never seen it before on any windows OS.

    Anyone have te same issue?

    Regards Topper.

    You already asked this here disksnapshot.exe? - Windows 10 Forums

    It is nothing to worry about and doesn't happen in latest preview.
