Our users have been noticing for the last few months that Shadow Copies on our server aren't working. I accidentally wrote over an important file a few minutes ago and checked the Shadow Copy client to restore it and... there was no previous version... >:-(
I then logged into the server to make sure Shadow Copies was setup right and it is fully configured and running. I have 150GB reserver for Shadow Copies but only 9GB is used, so it's not a space problem. I have Shadow Copies set to backup the whole drive (1.5TB)
I then checked the schedule and according to the file server console, the shadow copies that are scheduled have all been made.
I have it set to make 5 shadow copies every day during business hours. Since we are a web development firm, I don't think that's excesive - we need to make sure we have the latest working versions available in case something gets messed up.
The Shadow Copies clients are Vista machines, and a few XP ones. I'm running Vista Ultimate 32-bit on my machine.
Any help is appreciated! Thanks!
