The Volume Shadow Copy and System Restore Conundrum

ShadowCopy-01For those users of Windows, there is exists a service that protects your data on a regular basis. This service is called Volume Shadow Copy and runs on every version of Windows post XP SP1. In Windows 8, this service will essentially be renamed File History, but share many of the same underpinnings. The difficulty I speak of, however, is that of the files this service creates, and the ability to make gainful use of them (especially if you don’t have the system to work with).

There are no more results.
