I am getting slightly confused by what a VSS (Volume Shadow Copy Service) backup exactly is, say in the context of an Exchange server.
I've read the following article.
Just to confirm, would I be correct in thinking that that the VSS backup application takes a snapshot of the mailbox data and transaction logs, and then backs this data up so that the 'live' data is not interfered with?
And how does VSS work with file servers? Is this where I can find a snapshot that was taken at 7am, 10am etc? Where is this data actually held?
