    Yes, backup completes correctly; but It worries me that VSS could corrupt any raw disk trying to do volume shadow.

    VSS is not very good in dealing with RAW disk. I don't think there is an option in MS to turn this off.

    I wan't VSS. VSS is DISABLED in server. TSM uses it, I don't.
    It's a Client's TSM BUG?

    VSS is not part of TSM but of Windows 2003. Any backup system that Microsoft sees as installed will link VSS with it.
     
: vss, windows 2003
