Hyper-V VSS Writer, how to use it and why ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • For development purposes I'm looking for information about how to connect to/open the Hyper-V VSS Writer and what could I be doing with it.

    Ultimately, I'm researching ways to 'catch' differences written by Hyper-V 2012 to VHDx's or AVHDx's, so that I can avoid comparing Initial images (backup purposes), or using any very expensive differential/rdc like techniques.

    Any ideas ? or better directions ?

    What's the Hyper-V VSS writer for ? there' little to no or useless information about it on MSDN/Hyper-V documentation (WMI stuff).

    What could a developer do with it ?

    Thank you
