What is the difference between ARCServe VSS and the Backup Agent for Open Files
Posted on 2008-10-28
We are installing ARCServe 12 on our network and I want to makes sure open files get backed up.
There is suprisingly little documentation on the CA site about what clients to install where for which purposes.
I need to know if I need the Backup Agent for Open files or just the Windows Client Agent.
I see in the VSS options on the server console that I have the option to enable VSS to back up open files.
Does this allow me to back up open files with the Windows Client alone or do I need to have the Open files agent.
Lastly, if I do need the Open Files agent should I leave the Windows Client Agent installed along side the Open Files agent, or does it need to be uninstalled first?
