Its a Seagate Driver File for Backup
  Steve Smith  
Tdrpman.sys is installed by Acronis True Image. The file reports as Acronis Try&Decide and Restore Points Volume Filter Driver . If Acronis cannot be uninstalled from the computer then do NOT delete this file from C:\Windows System32\Drivers. Leave it be as it ties itself into Windows bootup and removal of it will render your computer unbootable. I renamed my tdrpman.sys to tdrpman.sys.bak as I wasnt sure it was needed after a failed uninstall of Acronis. It locked me into an XP boot loop. I luckily used an 6 floppy boot disc set to enter C:\Windows using the R command and renamed it back.
It is possible it is a malware. It messed up my bootmgr i recovered my bootmgr then it wouldn't let me boot into windows just winre

Best practices for resolving tdrpman issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with tdrpman. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using cleanmgr and sfc /scannow, uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using msconfig) and enabling Windows' Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.

To help you analyze the tdrpman.sys process on your computer, the following programs have proven to be helpful: Security Task Manager displays all running Windows tasks, including embedded hidden processes, such as keyboard and browser monitoring or Autostart entries. A unique security risk rating indicates the likelihood of the process being potential spyware, malware or a Trojan.
