IST346: Lab Last Update: 11/10/2011 3:37 PM Page 3 PART 1 SNAPSHOTS WITH VOLUME SHADOW COPIES SERVICE (VSS) Snapshots are point-in-time copies of files and folders. Snapshots in the Windows operating system are called Volume Shadow copies. As the name indicates, they must be configured at the volume level, and you cannot set up shadow copies for a folder or single file. The Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) must be enabled on the local volume, but the feature can only be used over a network file share. This is by design so that the file recovery process can be placed in the hands of the end user. This section will demonstrate how to configure and use shadow copies. We will configure the service on our Win2008 VM, and use it from the Win7 workstation on our W: drive To prepare for configuring shadow copies, please do the following: 1. Log-on to your Win2008 virtual machine as Administrator 2. Log-on to your Win7 virtual machine as user346 . 1.A VOLUME SHADOW COPIES FROM THE USER’S PERSPECTIVE. As explained earlier the VSS runs over a physical server volume, which is exposed to the users over the network as a file share using WFS (Windows File Sharing). From Win7: logged in as user346 1. Open Computer from the start menu. If you see a W: drive present and you can double-click on it and see files from two weeks ago, proceed to step #2. If you don’t have a W: drive mapped or you can’t access it, follow these steps Click on the blue start circle in the lower left hand corner of the screen. Under the Search programs and file box, type \\win2008 and press enter. You should see winshare popup in a window. Right click on this folder, select map network drive , scroll down to W: and press finished. 2. Right click on the W: drive, and choose Properties from the menu. 3. You should see a Previous Versions tab in the dialog. It’s empty since we haven’t configured the service.
