Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I have few questions regarding the VSS technology:

    1. can it be used to create consistent backup of running Windows Server 2008 / 2012 physical machines ?

    2. is there an API for C# that can be used for using the VSS technology ?

    3. can we do incremental backup with the snapshots? (e.g at time x we have snapshot 1 at time y instead of having a full snapshot can we have only the increments?)

    4. can we restore the VSS snapshot to another physical / virtual machine ? precisely i want to know whether we can do a continuous replication of a running server to another machine using VSS ?
