Microsoft Shadow Copy, also known as Volume Snapshot Service or VSS, is used by R1Soft CDP for Windows.
Shadow Copy is a technology included in Windows Operating systems that allows for taking manual or automatic backup copies or snapshots of data, even if it has a lock, on a specific volume at a specific point in time over regular intervals. It is implemented as a Windows service called the Volume Shadow Copy service.
MS Volume Shadow Copy Service is a facility that can be used for many different purposes. One feature of VSS is the ability to take a block level point-in-time snapshot of a disk Volume. VSS guarantees that the file system is consistent when a snapshot is performed.
