Shadow Copy Previous Versions not shown in XP client
Posted on 2006-11-23
I 'm currently working on redirecting the Desktop and My documents Folders of laptop users to a network share on a Win2003 SP1 server using a GPO. I have done this successfully on my test client which runs XP sp2 and thought it would be a good idea to enable Shadow Copy on the volume storing all this data, however when I go to view a file’s available previous versions on the client, there are none listed even though I know the copy has been created, it doesn’t appear available to the client.
I have tried installing the client software on both server and client and have tried restoring a previous version by simply going to the UNC of the folder share, but with no avail! The only complication is that the client is treating its My Docs and Desktop as Offline Folders, but I can’t see why that’s a problem! Any ideas?
