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

Summary: One user judges tdrpman.sys to be an essential file that should not be touched. For this reason, one user has already deleted tdrpman.sys. source: file.net
