  2. Shadow Copy With Storage Spaces?

    1 Create shadow storage

    1.1 The System protection tab in System Properties

    • this GUI only lists NTFS volumes, so you can't create shadow storage for ReFS volume there
    • instead try one of:
      • vssadmin add shadowstorage /for=D: /on=D: /maxsize=100GB (Windows Server only)
        • alternatively for non-server Windows editions try vssadmin resize shadowstorage /for=D: /on=D: /maxsize=10% that will add shadow storage if it does not exist and thus is comparable to vssadmin add
      • wmic shadowstorage call create Volume=D:\ DiffVolume=D:\ MaxSpace=20
        • if this command returns ReturnValue = 10 (which is Unknown error) workaround follows
      • wmic shadowcopy call create Volume=D:\
        • creating shadow copy on disk without shadow storage will create one automatically
        • you can resize the shadow storage with vssadmin resize shadowstorage /for=D: /on=D: /maxsize=10%

    1.2 List shadow storages

    • make sure the shadow storage is there and configured using one of:
      • vssadmin list shadowstorage
      • wmic shadowstorage list

    2 Create shadow copy

    2.1 Create shadow copy

    • you want to use scheduled system protection feature, but for now just take a snapshot manually:
      • wmic shadowcopy call create Volume=D:\

    2.2 List shadow copies

    • verify the snapshot was created:
      • vssadmin list shadows /for=D:

    3 Mount shadow copy

    • since you are using Storage Spaces, you won't see snapshots in Previous versions tab in disk/file properties
    • but the snapshots exists and can be mounted as a folder
    • this shortage apply for both NTFS and ReFS Storage Spaces
    • to mount a snapshot you will need shadow ID, shadow path and temporary folder

    3.1 Get shadow copy ID

    • vssadmin list shadows /for=D:
      • look for something like this Shadow Copy ID: {5cc29315-0379-415e-8496-69923618e3de}

    3.2 Get shadow copy path

    • wmic shadowcopy where "ID='{5cc29315-0379-415e-8496-69923618e3de}'" get DeviceObject
    • or vssadmin list shadows /for=D:
      • look for Shadow Copy Volume: \\?\GLOBALROOT\Device\HarddiskVolumeShadowCopy624

    3.3 Mount shadow copy as folder

    • mklink /j %tmp%\shadow \\?\GLOBALROOT\Device\HarddiskVolumeShadowCopy624\
      • note the extra \ at the end
      • the shadow copy is now available in %tmp%\shadow

  3. Volume Shadow Copy - Win 10 problems

    Hi Göran,

    There are several reasons why the error shows when creating a System Restore. In some cases, it can be due to multiple backup solutions installed on your PC that causes conflict. For us to better assist you, we would like to ask for additional information.
    Please answer the following:

    • Do you have another backup solution in your PC aside from the one provided by Microsoft?
    • Have you tried checking the Windows Services if the Shadow Copy, Task Scheduler, and
      Microsoft Software Shadow Copy Provider service are running?

    We hope to hear from you soon.
