Unfortunately tracking which third party applications are calling a PI Backup can be a bit tricky. Can you check the backup history in PI SMT -> Operation -> Backups -> Details and provide a screenshot of what you see?
- You may also be able to find hints of a third party application calling a backup in Windows Event Viewer application message logs around the same time as the backup.
- Is any other 3rd party backup software installed on the machine?
- Is the PI Data Archive installed on a VM, it may be a VM backup that is causing the PI Backup.
- Is the machine managed by an IT group at your organization? They may have a better idea of software installed/operations on the machine.
Hopefully investigation of these items will help uncover where the backup is coming from.
