I tried to defrag today and at 3% complete it would pause for volume shadow copy. I can't get around it.

If this drive that you are trying to defragment is being used for Shadow Copies then trying to defragment it may cause problems. The Volume Shadow Copy service is used to permit different applications and storage management applications such as backup applications to define, save, and use consistent point in time copies of storage data for backup, restore, and other purposes.

If you are using a backup program that uses Volume Shadow Copies then you may want to turn that feature off if you need to defragment the drive. Or you can try to disable or stop the Volume Shadow Copies service on your computer from the services utility.
