Default "MacDrive service for Digidesign" - keep running or disable?

Trying to do some additional housekeeping here on a Win 7 Pro / 64-bit / PT 9.0.2 system.

I have disabled "macdrive8serviced.exe" with no apparent problems. Anything I should be concerned with down the road?

Any other PT services I can safely disable?

You would only need that if you want to connect an external drive that was formatted for a Mac. It works well for moving sessions between your PC and any Mac setup, but if you never do that, you can leave it disabled.
