    10-Minute Solution: Using the Volume Shadow Copy

    Decrease your volume of help-desk calls with Windows Server 2003.

    Full article and instructions found here.

    One of the most exciting features of Windows Server 2003 is the Volume Shadow Copy (VSC) service. What's most impressive is that it is fast and easy to implement, and it will have an immediate, positive impact on Help Desk workload because of the way the shadow copy service works with shared folders. The VSC service automatically takes a "snapshot" of the files located in any shared folder where the service has been enabled. These snapshots include an image of the folder's contents at a given point in time.

    Yes this is very handy... the good thing about it is that it works on different OSs connected to Server 2003. I use win2k, and my shared project directories use Shadow Copies, useful when "development work goes bad" ...

    Offtopic: How's your Server course going Rik? was it MSCE?

    yeah it was MCSE. It came, it went...I don't use or support server OSs so it was a beeoch for me. But I am still studying "slowly but slowly" and still planning on testing.

    Thanks for askin Bud.
