Local Administrator Requirements for service mode

When switching to service mode, Bvckup 2 creates a service account and adds it to the local Administrator's group.  Can we provide more specific ACL settings and User Rights assignments so that this membership can be removed without disabling the software?

Local Administrator's membership is added to allow for using the shadow copying service. This part of VSS is rather poorly documented, so it's possible that being a member of Backup Operator group would be sufficient.

If you are not using VSS, then you can lock down "Bvckup 2 Service" user around the file access that your backups require.
