Z-VSScopy - Volume Shadow Copy
Z-vsscopy manages the windows restore points (snapshots) that are created by your operating system. It displays all the restore points in your system and allows you to browse their contents and restore selected files and directories. Software installations and system updates generally create restore points in windows vista and later.
A restore point contains snapshots of important system files which can be used to cleanly and easily revert the system to the previous working state in case of incompatible software or failed updates. Restore points are usually hidden in the system and can only be restored completely.
With z-vsscopy, you get a comfortable user interface to look into restore points and to browse and restore selected files and directories. This makes it much easier to use restore points for backup purposes and restore exactly what you need. Restore points are implemented with vss technology (volume shadow copy service).
If multiple such snapshots are kept by the system, more space is consumed on your hard drive. Because microsoft keeps the vss technology relatively buried inside the windows operating system, it can seem as if your free space simply disappears. Our z-vsscopy tool shows you exactly how much space the existing snapshots occupy and lets you delete unneeded snapshots to recover free space on your hard drive.
Z-vsscopy is both a stand-alone program for managing windows restore points and also acts as an add-on module for our backup applications z-dbackup and z-datdump. It utilizes vss technology to enable z-dbackup and z-datdump to back up exclusively opened (locked) files, databases and applications.
Z-vsscopy makes use of the microsoft vss technology and intelligently assists backups with z-dbackup and z-datdump.
