Hi tweakradje.

I'm not understanding your post.
Are you having a problem that members can help you with.

Hi Bear,

Thanks for your post. I posted this since I was looking for a way to create VSS Snapshots from the command line on workstations to use in Task Scheduler. Normally on workstations only Windows Backup can do that. Vssadmin is crippled and don't have that Create Shadow option.
In your tutorials I only found Shadow Copies Delete so I posted it in that thread.
So I don't need help with it. Just informational for others to use.

Don't forget that no copies are made from folders and files mentioned in this registry key!

Kind regards
