Transfer FILE SHADOW COPY SERVICE VSS to a different computer

Is it possible to transfer the files from FILE SHADOW COPY SERVICE from the old computer to the new one?

I have a new server and I want to transfer the shadow files also.

Thanks

Hi c2it,

Unfortunately Shadow Copy files cannot be moved from one volume to another...even if you tried to restore them to another computer.  It probably has to do with the fact that it is not taking snapshots of the entire file but instead of just the deltas.
