Volume Shadow Copy Service setting

I have Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit.

Under "services"....."volume shadow copy service".....then "properties"..... the Sratup type" is set to "Manual".
Is this the correct setting or should it be set to "automatic" ?

thank you

I believe that it should be set to manual if you have system restore enabled.

I hate to say this, but when I had VSS set to Manual, all my System Restore points were lost and no new ones were made at any time.

I had to set it to Automatic (Delayed Start) to have restore points work properly.
