Enable Shadow Copy on a SAN Volume containing Exchange 2003 Database

I have a Windows 2003 server that has a SAN virtual drive assigned to it thats storing ithe Exchange 2003 database and log files.  Currently shadow copy is disabled on that volume.
Would it be best to enable shadow copy on that volume? What are the benefits for enabling shadow copy on that volume?  If the store gets corrupted and i restore from previous versions?
thanks..
