Hi, guys. Today I noticed that the Modules folder of Eset (C:\Program Files\ESET\ESET Security\Modules is of a very respectable size - 849 MB. I was quite surprised as in the past the whole Eset folder in Program files was of a much smaller size. Nothing special otherwise - Win 10 64 bit, besides Eset only Hard_configurator installed as security.
Could anyone check this folder on his computer?

Well, I don't think that is normal. Here is a link to a similar complaint in their forum, which is quite old but still.. No clear answer was given, beside whether diagnostics was enabled. Nothing to do with it, my Diagnostics folder is empty (diagnostics is disabled):

I think I discovered the reason - it backs up modules for the option to roll back to previous modules.
