System Drive Backups are creating/editing System Restore files

Auto or manual,  incremental or full backups of my system drive (CSmiley Happy (has system protection turned on) is creating and editing the system restore files in the C:\System Volume Information directory.  No restore points show as available restore points and this activity is chewing up disk space.  Why is this being done and how do I turn it off?

‎4/22,/2015 ‏‎12:51 PM = Creation of "1st point after deleting all" restore point

4/22/2015 ‏‎5:00:50 PM = Auto Incremental  of C: drive

4/‎24/2015 ‏‎9:46 PM  = Manual Incremental of C: drive

‎4/23/2015 ‏‎5:00:58 PM = Auto Incremental of C: drive

So you can see where SSR is creating and editing the system restore files.  It is chewing up unnecessary disk space and I cannot see how this would be useful for any kind of SSR image restore???  I would like to disable this "feature".

Thanks for your help -- David

But you see the recovery

But you see the recovery points in the SSR console?

Yes.  SSR recovery points are

Yes.  SSR recovery points are created. No problem there.  Everything as normal.  Only everytime a recovery point (incremental or full) is created on the system drive for which windows protections is turned on, SSR is editing/creating the windows sytem protection/restore files in the System Volume Information directory.  This is chewing up disk space quickly.  There is no windows restore point created that I can use for windows system restoration. 

It is definitely SSR that is creating this activity (probably VSS thru SSR).  Why is SSR doing this and how do I turn this off.
