Hi henry.frye2

Welcome to TM Home users Community, a public site where volunteers try to help each-other , also there are TM Employees that can give answers, that is only at working hours.

when you did the install you put it on and choose the folders to protect.

You can put it off, but if you do so, dont come here to ask help if someone has take over your folders!
It is better to look how it works and use it!

Kind regards,
