thpsrv.exe is part of TOSHIBA HDD Protection Service from Toshiba. This process is a digital tilt detector that moves the HDD head to a safe position if a buitl-in acceleration sensor in the computer picks up movement or vibration. It prevents damage that may be caused by head to disk contact. The sensor is built in to the Tecra A7, and probably many other later models.
