Bitdefender Total Security 2020 causing constant read-access to my external HDD and USB ports


Ever since the last update to BDTS 2020 anything connected to my USB ports suffers from constant read-access. I know that it is being caused by BD because after many days of research and testing I found that after uninstalling BD this behavior stopped. Upon installing BD again right at the final point of its install the constant read-access to my USB ports starts all over again. This makes the external HDD I use for backing up my PC being accessed constantly and thus will shorten its lifespan. I have looked at every setting in BD and nothing will make this behavior stop. I am running Windows 10 Home Ver. 2004 Build 19041.331

Is anyone else seeing this behavior with BDTS 2020?

Thank you in advance for any support on this issue.
