yes, you can use shadow copy, default limit is set to 10% but you can change it whatever you want. If you will have too small free space then maybe VSS is not effective but since you almost 50% free then VSS sounds reasonable

nothing badly will happen.
only if you will have small amount of free space your shadow copies may delete in a short period of time and will lose a their purpose or if oyu set no limit you can have low disk space after some time

The problems with reply email signatures

Do you wish that you could place an email signature under a reply? Well, unfortunately, you can't. That great Exchange/Office 365 signature you've created will just appear at the bottom of an email chain. What a pain! Is there really no way to solve this? Well, there might be...

I would leave it at the default 10% and definitely set it to only once a day (preferably after hours as the initial shadow copy might slow down the server a lot.)  700Gb (10%) is a lot and you will find that you will never reach that limit.

Hi,

There's no extra steps to be taken. Just start with defaults. Go to:

Administrative Tools >  Computer Management > Shared Folders > All Tasks > Configure Shadow volumes > Select Volumes and Select Enable.

You will see a warning about the scheduled task. Shadow copy task is normally scheduled to start at 7:00 AM on workdays. Customize this if you need a different schedule.

For performance reasons you might consider to place Shadow Copies on a different volume (if you have another spare drive).

It is also advised to have a block size of at least 16K for your drive but since you're using a larger device I guess your default block size is 16K or larger.


This is it.

Cheers,
K.
