Notifying you that you do not need to run Space Reclaimer on the selected disk.
Click Cancel to exit the Confirm Space Reclamation on Disk window, or go to the next step to continue with space reclamation.
Note: When you run Space Reclaimer on a disk that SnapDrive has determined has no space to reclaim, the space reclamation process can still take as long to complete as it would for a disk that does have reclaimable space. This is because SnapDrive performs NTFS block comparisons and analyzes disk infrastructure regardless of whether there is space to reclaim.
In the space provided by the check box, type the number of minutes you want Space Reclaimer to run on the LUN. By default, Space Reclaimer runs until the LUN is optimized.
The space reclamation process runs in the background. You can monitor the Space Reclaimer progress for the selected LUN by watching the status bar in the Details pane in MMC.
