  • Stop VSS when defragmenting NTFS volume?

    About this parameter, the description read as follows:
    "It will temporary stop VSS when defragmenting to protect your current VSS backup and your VSS after the defrag is completed"

    But what are the CONS and PROS?

    I guess that if enabled, the HDD can be further optimized and defraged, but the VSS will get compromised/corrupted
    and if disabled, the VSS will remain intact but the HDD will not be 100% optimized & defraged

    Please clarify
    Thanks

    Hello ektorbarajas,

    Welcome to our forum. It is my pleasure to answer your question.

    "It will temporary stop VSS when defragmenting to protect your current VSS backup and your VSS after the defrag is completed" . It is designed to avoid the loss of restore point.

    Have a good time.

      Hi Cicely,

      I'd like to further explore this option:
      If enabled the "Stop VSS when defragmenting NTFS volume" will Smart Defrag further optimize the NTFS HDDs?

      I'd like to get out of the most of Smart Defrag

      Thanks

        Hi there,

        It will defrag NTFS as well. But if you tick this option and there is VSS on NTFS, the VSS service will be stopped when defragging.

        Cheers.

          Thanks for that, but this makes me wonder:

          Why this setting is not enabled by default or as a recommended setting? Any reason for that? Any side effect?
