Configure Shadow Copies

Last Updated: 

Background: In addition to a Data Restore through CloudConnect, another option for data retention and retrieval is configuring Shadowcopies. Shadowcopies must be configured before any files can be restored from them, however. This article will outline how to do just that.

Process: Configuring Shadow Copies for a virtual machine is the same process as it would be for any other machine. Firstly, log in to the virtual desktop with an Administrator account.

Navigate to Disk Management, and right click the volume you'd like to set up Shadow Copies on.

Select "Properties", and navigate to the Shadow Copies tab. Select the volume you'd like to set up Shadow Copies on, and select "Enable".

With that, you've successfully configured Shadow Copies on this volume!

Congratulations, you're done!

Applies to: Windows Server Emulated 2012 / 2016 / 2019

Additional Notes: CloudConnect's DesktopConfig utility has the ability to automatically configure Shadow Copies on current Virtual Machine volumes.
