Import

Updated: April 17, 2012

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

Imports a transportable shadow copy from a loaded metadata file into the system.

For examples of how to use this command, see Examples.

import

  • Transportable shadow copies are not stored on the system immediately. Their details are stored in a Backup Components Document XML file, which DiskShadow automatically requests and saves in a .cab metadata file in the working directory. You can change the path and name of this file using the set metadata command.

  • Before you can use import, you must load a DiskShadow metadata file using the load metadata command.

The following is a sample DiskShadow script that demonstrates the use of the import command:

   #Sample DiskShadow script demonstrating IMPORT
   SET CONTEXT PERSISTENT
   SET CONTEXT TRANSPORTABLE
   SET METADATA transHWshadow_p.cab
   #P: is the volume supported by the Hardware Shadow Copy provider
   ADD VOLUME P:
   CREATE
   END BACKUP
   #The (transportable) shadow copy is not in the system yet.
   #You can reset or exit now if you wish.

   LOAD METADATA transHWshadow_p.cab
   IMPORT
   #The shadow copy will now be loaded into the system.
