I have a 500GB volume on our file server and I'd like to enable Volume Shadow Copies.  Does this mean you need to allocate at least 500GB, and more than likely 1TB, of space to keep at least one copy of everything?  Or can I allocate say, 300GB and just tell it to make copies of things that are changed rather than a full copy?
