Shadow Copies of Shared Folders Shadow Copies of Shared Folders A Windows Server 2008 mechanism that automatically  retains copies of files on a server volume in multiple  versions from specific points in time. When users accidentally overwrite or delete files, they  can access the shadow copies to restore earlier  versions.  This feature is designed to prevent administrators from  having to load backup media to restore individual files for  users.  Shadow Copies is a file-based fault tolerance  mechanism that does not provide protection against disk  failures, but it does protect against accidental file  deletions that inconvenience users and administrators on  a regular basis.
