Volume Shadow Copy Service

The Volume Shadow Copy Service component provides the Volume Shadow Copy service, which makes it possible for applications to get point-in-time copies of volumes.

Note   For Windows® XP Embedded Service Pack 2 Feature Pack 2007, the Volume Shadow Copy Service component has been re-factored. That breaks a dependency from WMI Core to Volume Shadow Copy to Indexing Service. This should save roughly 14MB on almost every single runtime built today


This component includes the Volume Shadow Copy service.
