Windows 7: Issue with shadow copy (VSS)

05 Sep 2010   #1

Win 7 64 bit
Issue with shadow copy (VSS)


I am running Windows 7 64 bit - professional edition.

I have the main (and only) disc partioned in 3 (it's an IBM notebook) two of them with less than 10mb free space. As a result, VSS is unable to create the snapshots of these drives, because it try's to save the snapshot on the same partition.

I know it is possible to tell VSS to create the snapshots elsewhere, eg. on C:\ but so far I haven't been able to do it.

Through console (cmd.exe) using VssAdmin I am unable to change the destination, because the add and delete command isn't there! and DiskShadow.exe is not on my system!

Please help me on how to configure VSS to save all snapshots(opened files) on my c:\ drive instead.

Thanks in advance
