I posed a question in support regarding copying system files over the network here: http://www.tgrmn.com/web/forum/viewtopict4359.htm . Since this isn't really a 'bug' issue in VV I am moving this conversation here to see if anyone has any experience that could help...

VSS shares cannot be initiated over the network. I know I can run VV locally but this decentralizes management and disperses the backups over too many machines. There would also be licensing issues.

An admin suggested:

... is it possible to schedule the creation of a shadow copy on the local machine and then have ViceVersa work out of that shadow copy? e.g. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc779652%28v=ws.10%29.aspx


I have been trying to experiment with this technique bu I am confused. The Windows documentation is not very clear. For example, if I create a vss share on the c drive, it seems to (a) force me to include the whole drive in the share, not just specific folders... and (b) I can't control or even see where the shares would be located in order to point VV to them from another machine. On the test machine it only allowed local 'revert'. I couldn't find a 'folder' to access for VV.

Does anyone here have experience in setting up VSS shared folders that can be accessed over an internal LAN?

The shares would be mostly on Win 7 and 2008R2 machines.

Thanks in advance to anyone that can help.
