You'll have no shadow copy capabilities for sharepoint.
It's the interface between sharepoint and volume shadow copy service to provide backup requirements to backup software

thanks for the reply, but i am not sure if we are using VSS services, but nevertheless if i disabled it, would it break sharepoint or anything or just prevent backup being processed or backup takes long time since it is not using VSS.

What i am trying to confirm is that if i can disabled it to see what is going without breaking sharepoint environment as this is production

Windows volume shadow copy would have to have been set up by your sys admin or someone for VSS to be working with it. If nobody has tyhen you aren't missing anything.
Disabling it wikll not harm your normal backups that you are taking either sharepoint/sql/windows backups.
