The Volume Shadow Copy technology requires NTFS as a file system and can be implemented as a Windows service called Volume Shadow Copy (or Volume Snapshot Service, or Shadow Copy, or what we already heard it to be, VSS).
One of the most popular reasons to go for a Volume Shadow Copy backup software solution is getting the advantage of hot backup.
Hot backup is copying data even if it is currently actively used and updated.
Say, we have an MS SQL Server. We do surely want those MS SQL Server backups to be hot. Because getting the database off-line, stopping the service, and hence losing time is something we donít like and our company is not really happy about (since making things quick is out business attitude).
Even if the backup is not about servers and databases, the need to copy a file processed by some applications is a rather common one.
If you ever tried to copy files locked or blocked by an application files, you would have a chance to see an error message like “The process cannot access the file because another process has locked a portion of the file”. In a situation like that, the VSS service for backup is exactly what you need.
For flawless copying of locked files, you only need to verify that these services are enabled:
Using a right Volume Shadow copy backup software solution, you have the whole power of snapshots making both services working for you.
