This process - C:\WINDOWS\system32\Logfiles\WMI\RtBackup\EtwRTNT Kernel Logger.etl - seems to read and write all the time:

In about 7 minutes over 3 GB. Is it like it should be? Can / should one stop that process? Because it impacts the performance?

Sorry to say I've had this issue for weeks and still no joy. Over the years I've largely migrated to Linux because of nonsense such as this and rarely use Windows for much other than for Windows-centric photo programs such as Lightroom, etc. As near as I can tell this kernel logging seems to be something new since I "upgraded" to the Creator's Update last year. In any case I've Googled myself into oblivion and by all accounts this idiotic file is essential to this OS running at all. I find it patently ridiculous that an OS, sitting essentially idle, needs to constantly read/write to a log file and worse yet not provide an obvious and easy way for the user to disable it.

 

Good luck finding out any useful info on this utter foolishness.
