Description of rpmkickstart.exe from Gigabyte Technology CO. LTD.
Ever deleted a file and the next week realized you still needed it? Without a backup of that file, you’d be out of luck, unless of course, you had GIGABYTE’s Smart Recovery. Smart Recovery allows users to backup their data such as system settings applications, documents, photos, music, videos, etc. and allows users to retrieve their data, even if it has been deleted. Every day, Smart Recovery takes a ‘snap shot’ of your hard drive and makes a record for any added, deleted or modified files. In the settings, you can set the time for the backup and also set the amount of space reserved on your hard drive for the backup. An entirely new copy of the data is not created, only the changes that have been made from the previous day, which helps to save your hard drive space. Currently, you can save up to 60 snap shots.

How is rpmkickstart.exe loaded?

Startup files (all users) run once - rpmkickstart.exe is registered with the run identifier 'RPMKickstart' and the execution command 'C:\Program Files\GIGABYTE\SmartRecovery2_x64\RPMKickstart.exe' in the Windows registry HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce. RunOnce keys are used to launch a service or background process whenever a user logs into Windows. Once the application is launched for the first time its entry will be removed from the Registry so it does not run again when the user logins again. Applications here are designed to be used primarily by Setup programs.
