Configuring shadow copies in Vista
I was wondering if there is a way of configuring shadow copies in vista (by configuring I mean setting times and drive limits not enabling them). I can do this on server 2008 by going to comp management > shared folders > shares > right click > all task > configure however this method doesn't seem to be in vista.
Anyone know a way? Using vista business by the way.
Thanks for any help :]

That's because it's not there. Shadow Copies are a server component, you can't use them on the disks in a workstation, although you can access the shadow copies available to you on the server if you're using them.

Vista and Windows 7 both have Shadow Copies for the local machine...
I'm not sure how the Shadow Copy service works for Vista/Win7 in regards to time, I believe they done as you work...
but there are some settings you can play with at:
System Properties > System Protection > "Configure"
Hopefully it's there, I didn't have a Vista machine to hand, but it stands to reason it will be there in Vista?

Hmm, I didn't think Vista did, sorry. I stand corrected.

I don't think it is in either of the two Home editions of Vista, never used one so couldn't say with assurance.
It's certainly in Business, haven't used Enterprise and never came across a situation requiring it in Ultimate, but reason stands that it should be in those two versions if it's in Business.
