Hi @Azhar_Nasim 

as long as you don't have any legacy applications in your environment it doesn't affect .

but it's recommend Monitor SMBv1 usage

To determine which clients are trying to connect to an SMB server running SMBv1,run below command 

Set-SmbServerConfiguration -AuditSmb1Access $true

When SMBv1 auditing is enabled, event 3000 appears in the Microsoft-Windows-SMBServer\Audit event log, which identifies each client that tries to connect to SMBv1
