Hello,

Can VV provides periodic pause-and-go setting functions that allow hard drives to have interval cool-down during file operations?

I have been using VV for several years. I like this product. I have many files. VV takes a while to backup my data. My working environment sometimes is hot. In addition, hard drives could be overheated and thus crashed when air-condictioner's power is interrupted. I had experienced twice hard-drive damages due to the hard-drive overheated. My computer system consists RAID storage systems. The hard-drive heat is sometimes a serious problem even with air-condicitoned all the time. Please provide the periodic pause&go function in the future versions. Thanks!

Regards,
David

Interesting... how would that work? Something like "pause every X minutes for X minutes"? thanks

Either maintenance on the hardware isn't being done or the hardware is poorly designed, or a little of both.

Your hardware should be able to keep itself properly cooled at 100% load indefinitely at any possible ambient temperature.

Address your hardware problem directly (clean, replace fans, add/upgrade fans, reconfigure equipment position/spacing, etc.).

I play a PC game that just came out a few weeks ago and it pegs all CPUs at 100% the entire time it is running (very odd actually, I expect it'll be corrected); the dev's forums are littered with posts blaming the software for overheating/crashes. The software isn't the cause of the problem but rather a symptom of a problem.

(And yes, it did prompt me to do my routine maintenance on my PC; cleaning the filters and blowing out the dust dropped my 100% load core temps 10 degrees C.)
