Slooooooow server backups with large files...


Recommended Posts

Glad you got it resolved. Nice detective work. For the record, I don't think I've ever enabled VSS on any server I've set up, certainly not on any at home.

VSS is a lifesaver for anyone running a large File Server.  This enables the User to retrieve their own deletes.

As long as you don't mind a chkdsk causing the shadow copies to be dumped, and that you use a VSS compatible defragger (if you use one at all), otherwise it can also cause them to be dumped.


Also, IIRC, file system filters can cause issues with them. And then there is when they just don't work. And since there is literally no documentation on how they're implemented.... there is no way to fix the issues when they occur. Other than re-associating the vss filters and hope it works.
