Running anti-virus software or high-load software causes slow writing or blocks writing to ActiveImage Protector config file. As a result the file may be corrupted. When the ActiveImage Protector config file "aip.ini" is corrupted, AIP operates with the minimum parameter, so that backup tasks run extremely slow. The corrupted schedules are not displayed on AIP console since the schedule backup stop working.
Please exclude the AIP installation path from the anti-virus software's scanning target.
Locating AIP install path
The AIP install path is defined as BINARY_PATH_NAME output by running the following command while AipService.exe is excluded.
> sc qc AipService | findstr BINARY > BINARY_PATH_NAME : C:\Program Files\Actiphy\ActiveImage Protector\AipService.exe Install Path C:\Program Files\Actiphy\ActiveImage Protector
