You can enable or disable the feature for each available volume using the System Protection tab in System Properties in Control Panel. To view or change the settings, click Start, right-click Computer, and then click Properties. In the window that opens, click System Protection.

PS. You may want to be sure that System Restore (ie not shadow copy) still works.

I only have home premium which does not have shadow copy, the feature is only availble in business and ultimate versions.

Reading further my view is that SC is a feature of System Restore, an extension of SR rather than a free standing tool.

If I am correct disabling SC will disable SR, others may help here. If you decide to do so then I would strongly recommend another form of back up like eg Acronis.
