WinXP and Volume Shadow Copy

  • We use pacl 6.0.1 . On Windows7 we can pack files ntuser.dat
    with volume shadow copy of active user. But this is not possible
    on Windows XP. Volume Shadow service is active.
    How can I backup active files ?

    PACL 6.0.1 does not support VSS, new 7.0 beta does.

  • I tried to pack active files ntuser.dat and ntuser.dat.log, but
    it doesnt do it, also as administrator.

    D:\test>pacomp -uvss -a -w -k -r -p -c2 d:\test\ “c:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\administrator\ntu*”
