IVssComponent::GetBackupStamp method

The GetBackupStamp method returns the backup stamp string stored by a writer for a given component.

Either a writer or a requester can call this method.

Syntax


HRESULT GetBackupStamp(
  [out]  BSTR *pbstrBackupStamp
);

Parameters

pbstrBackupStamp [out]

The address of a caller-allocated variable that receives a string containing the backup stamp indicating the time at which the component was backed up.

Return value

The following are the valid return codes for this method.

ValueMeaning
S_OK

Successfully returned the attribute value.

S_FALSE

There is no time stamp associated with this component.

E_INVALIDARG

One of the parameter values is not valid.

E_OUTOFMEMORY

The caller is out of memory or other system resources.

VSS_E_INVALID_XML_DOCUMENT

The XML document is not valid. Check the event log for details. For more information, see Event and Error Handling Under VSS.

 

Remarks

If no backup time stamp has been set, GetBackupStamp returns S_FALSE.

If the call to GetBackupStamp is successful, the caller is responsible for freeing the string that is returned in the pbstrBackupStamp parameter by calling the SysFreeString function.

The string returned refers to all files in the component and any nonselectable subcomponents it has.

The backup stamp retrieved by GetBackupStamp is generally set by a writer by a call to IVssComponent::SetBackupStamp from within the PostSnapshot event handler, CVssWriter::OnPostSnapshot.

Requesters merely store the backup stamps in the Backup Components Document; they do not make direct use of the backup stamp, know how to generate it, or understand its format.
