Server 2012r2 Shadow Copies/Previous Version

213 Views
Last Modified: 2017-12-28
Hi

I want to reconfigure our shadow copies so that they are stored on a separate disk as they are currently being stored on the same disk as all the shares are on.  We have had a few issues with performance such as opening files taking a long time.  I have noticed that the shadow copies were running on the default schedule, which I have amended to run at a more convenient time, but I wanted to follow the recommended procedure.

Is it possible to reconfigure without losing the previous shadow copies ?  We do a nightly back up of the file server using Veeam.

Thanks
Matthew
