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.

Volume Shadow Copies Service (VSS) Volume Shadow Copies Service (VSS) Shadow Copies of Shared Folders uses the Volume Shadow Copies Service (VSS) . Shadow Copies of Shared Folders functionality is enabled at the volume level, which means that it will be enabled or disabled for all shared folders on the C:\ drive, the D:\ drive, etc. Shadow Copies of Shared Folders works by periodically taking a snapshot of the contents of all shared folders on a particular volume, and storing those snapshots to allow users and administrators to refer back to them later for any of the purposes described above. Shadow copies are read-only; you cannot modify the contents of a shadow copy.
