Running Windows 2008 Server SP2.
I have an application running on this server named Mercury. Both the database type file and logs etc are all located in D:\Program Files\Mercury.
I would like to take a snapshot copy of this file and copy it to E:\Test so I can run some tests on it.
I have been recommended to use VSS to copy this file.
Can anyone tell me
1. What is the benefit of VSS over, say, copy and paste
2. Where does VSS store the file before I copy it to E:\Test
3. Is the above location configurable
4. Can I VSS copy multiple files at the same time
