It's the system process name for Windows Backup and Restore; if you go to system32 you will see sdclt in the list of files. Don't remove it! Grant
Even though it says its unknown..this file is part of the windows backup.
it's windows 7 backup and restore file. Robin
It's very suspicious that the process started while the windows 7 laptop was left unattended. VSSVC.exe also tried to start. This is a new install and doesn't need a backup, so it wasn't anything I initiated. John
