Win10 Home x64 (1803-17134.288)
Starting in August 2018 (don't know the exact date) ... Windows Defender / Windows Module Installer are creating a System Restore Point every 24 hrs. Based on the time stamps, it appears this is being done by the default Windows Defender Task (Verification Task) in Task Scheduler. As part of this, the Component Based Servicing is creating xxx_xxxx.xml and xxx_xxx.bak.xml file in the C:\Windows\servicing\Sessions folder.
The CBS.log shows the following ...

I do not want/need Windows Defender filling up my System Restore Allocated Size with these Restore Points ... How do you stop this from happening without turning off System Restore Points ???
