What offline files are included in the 2003 and 2008 system state?
Posted on 2011-03-17
Happy St. Patrick's day! I have recently had a problem with a backup job which was failing (in Commvault) when backing up the windows 2008 system state because 'offline files' were causing a problem. I was not aware that offline files were part of system state and thought they resided in the client's CSC directory. I've trawled technet and can find no reference to offline files being a part of system state.
My question is, what component of offline files is stored in both 2003 and 2008's system state and what is the result of omitting it/ them from a backup job?
thanks in advance,
