Enable and Configure Shadow Copies of Shared Folders

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

If you enable Shadow Copies of Shared Folders on a volume using the default values, tasks will be scheduled to create shadow copies at 7:00 A.M. and noon. The default storage area will be on the same volume, and its size will be 10% of the available space.

You can only enable Shadow Copies of Shared Folders on a per-volume basis—that is, you cannot select specific shared folders and files on a volume to be copied or not copied.

  1. Open Computer Management.

  2. In the console tree, right-click Shared Folders, click All Tasks, and click Configure Shadow Copies.

  3. Click the volume where you want to enable Shadow Copies of Shared Folders, and then click Enable.

  4. To make changes to the default schedule and storage area, click Settings.
