Running Backup and Restore on Windows 10 1909, I noticed that the backup was very slow because Windows Defender (
MsMpEng.exe) used most of the CPU time. In the Windows Defender configuration I excluded the process
C:\Windows\System32\svchost.exe, which is the process running the backup service. But that feels like a potentially dangerous overkill.
Is there a way to exclude a service (instead of a process) in Windows Defender?
