    I was doing a defrag and it kept stopping because of a conflict with
    the Volume Shadow Copy service. A quick Internet search turned up a
    site that recommended disabling the Volume Shadow Copy while defrag is
    running.

    http://forum.soft32.com/win4/Defragmenting-pauses-volume-shadow-copy-ftopict212207.htm

    I did and that fixed the problem.

    The site said to leave it disabled if I don't need it. It didn't say
    how I could tell if I need it.

    I left it disabled and everything seems to be working OK.

    How can I tell if I can leave it disabled or if I need to reenable it?
