shadow copies RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, the shadow copies are disabled by default (volume/ properties). Checking the schedule, they are only prepared for running as a job from Monday to Friday twice a day.


    Believing that these must run in any way, shouldn't be a default usage be from Monday to Sunday..? WHS is designed for home operational and I guess "we user" will work at the weekend tooWink


    How does WHS work with these shadow copies; I detected that shadow-copy is working with the shares alltough these are not activated ??

  • VSS makes copies of files every 12 hours, no matter the day of the week. They are used to support the previous versions functionality that exists in current versions of Windows.

    WHS probably triggers the shadow copy service, rather than relying on the scheduler.
