Volume Shadow Copies
Posted on 2014-12-02
I am in the process of upgrading our file share server. I want to turn on VSS. I see that a separate volume is suggested. I think I can come up with the necessary additional in space. However, I don't have any spare backup capacity. Is there any reason I'd need to backup the volume shadow copies. I'll still be backing up the file share data itself. I just wanted to be sure if something happened to the shadows copies, there was no possibility of corruption to the share themselves, etc.. I do not wish to back the volume shadow copies -- that's like backup up backup -- but wanted to be sure. I'm running Windows 2012.
