Feature request - VSS only during specific time(s)

We're coming from StorageCraft where this was a feature we enjoyed. We could specify VSS backups always, or only at a specific time.

Some of the systems we backup are very performance sensitive and VSS can be a problem. We'd like to be able to limit VSS on some VMs or jobs to a specific time of day.

Hi Dan,

Thank you for the FR, as a workaround you can create 2 jobs with a different schedule and VSS settings.

Thanks!

Or schedule at a specific time a PS script that enables VSS setting for a particular job. Thanks.

That's a great workaround. Thanks.

This is what we have been doing, but it uses a lot of storage without a deduplicating appliance.
