    VSS = Volume Shadow Copy

    I read conflicting accounts on different www's about vssadmin being able, or not, to delete selected System Restore points, amongst other things. Is this true ?

    I was able to launch vssadmin through CMD, but that was all !


    I had noted various commands listed on those www's, but none appeared to be accepted ?

    Is this possible, or not, & if so how ?


    Using XP/SP2 for the above test.

    In Windows 7 I see the following options:

    Delete Shadows;
    List Provides;
    List Shadows;
    List ShadowStorage;
    List Volumes;
    List Writers;
    Resize ShadowStorage
