Any way to throttle the scanner?

Question

So i just set up primocache and went over to blame the problem on them, but after the issue did not disappear when disabling it... i had to look here.   task manager had my "system" process using 350mb of disk i/o which zero of my hard disks are even capable of.   that being said, my performance on my hdds were abysmal.  I had a macrium back up hang on consolidating files as the time was at 200 hours and just kept going up.   I tried some gaming/emulation stuff and it was hitchy as can be.  

i assume im going to need to tell scanner only to scan at night or something?  which will delay my ability to detect any failures i god forbid could potentially have along the line.  

sadface.

You can set a work window for StableBit Scanner to run it's scans, yes.

Also, over time, it should get better about when to scan the drives. 

 

And to clarify, it isn't an "all or nothing" for the scan. It keeps track of the areas on the disk that have been scanned, and when.  So even if a scan gets interupted, it will pick up where it left off.
