  • As I haven't used it yet so I have a question rather than a review. The optimization-tool of my new Samsung SSD (Samsung Magnician) offers three options to maximize either performance, capacity or reliability. All three(!) disable Win7s system backup completely - so I guess the Volume Shadow Copy too: too much temporary writings! Is there a possibility for vscsc to create the Volume-Shadow-Copy on a separate external USB-Stick? It would mean that vscsc can be started with source volume e.g. C: and the destination F: of the shadow copy?
