Andy,

Is there any indication in the Windows client dsmsched.log that VSS
shadow copy was used to backup the local drives when the
"SNAPSHOTPROVIDERFS VSS" is used?

Hi Zoltan,

Your questions are somewhat timely. We are actually reviewing the need
to
back up and/or restore these files at all, but for now, it is probably
best
to at least back them up.

The Microsoft VSS, including the Microsoft VSS snapshot provider, is
installed and enabled with all Windows OSes from Windows 2003 and up.
System state backup uses VSS. So enabling OFS with VSS as the snapshot
provider, as I suggested, doesn't require anything more than:

1. Updating the client options file

2. Restarting the client scheduler if you do not use the CAD to manage
the
scheduler

Having said that, these files are part of the system state, and since
system state is backed up using VSS, I'm surprised to see them
processed as
part of the C: drive. Are there any other warning or error messages
appearing in the dsmerror.log file during system state backup?

Best regards,
