Is it OK to run Shadow copy on the system (C:) volume? If not is there documentation explaining why?

Thanks in advance.

No reason why not. Volume shadow copy only creates previous versions of shared folders so (most) system folders will not be affected by it.

grapeorillo,

I personally wouldnt...not that there is a huge problem as shown above, but VSS is on a per volume basis and user data in my opinion should be kept on a separate volume with VSS enabled

Regards,

James
