Having loads of problems with LaCerte on sbs 2003 R2 and lacerte is asking if we defragged or run sfc at all or regularly. I said no to both.
Am I wrong? I asked them for their best practices recommendation and they said it's a microsoft issue and MS says monthly?!
We run shadow protect for backup so that will cause huge backups every month after a defrag. I thought the need for defrag has gone away?
And SFC? I never heard to run that routinely.
as for checking the hard disks (it's a RAID array), I posted that question here:
it does provide a slight help with the logical storage and can reduce directory entries, speeding up that part of access.
