Help exercising control over Shadowcopy
Need help Vista Ultimate and Windows 8.
I want to stop Windows shadow copy service from using certain
volumes to store data on.
Specifically I want to protect my C: drive but not place the shadow copies
on either my D: drive or P: drive
I can go into Administrator command prompt and run
C: VSSADMIN /?
The options I get is to
The VSSADMIN Resize shadowstorage /On=P: /For=C: /maxsize=300MB
Takes a minimum of 300MB.
If I specify /maxsize=0MB, it rejects the command
There should be a way to tell the system to leave a particular volume alone.
Turning shadow copy off would delete the stored copies, but in the past
it was impossible for me to turn it back on.
The only way I could get it back on was by re-installing windows.
