    If you are using FD-ISR with Vista and/or 7 you should add the following entry in your "Excluded Files" (you will find the menu under "Tools -> Options -> Tasks"):

    *{3808876b-c176-4e48-b7ae-04046e6cc752}

    Those are files created by the Volume Shadow copy Service in the "System Volume Information" folder and should be excluded from the snapshots.

    Does the Volume Shadow copy Service still affect system restore if sys restore service is turned off as recommended when using FD-ISR?

    Probably because I needed to write my post in a more understandable way:oops:

    Let me start again.

    I have system restore turned off.

    Would I still need to exclude the files you mentioned that are created by the Volume Shadow copy Service?

    Yes, you should exclude them. I do not know why but FD-ISR actually backup the *{3808876b-c176-4e48-b7ae-04046e6cc752} file that is created, when you perform an update of a snapshot or an archive.

    Thanks for that pandlouk.

    Although I am still on xp the information you just gave on this will, I am sure, prove helpful to others.

    C:\System Volume Information\

    It did not apply the exclusion to the Schedules for me under Windows 7, only if I copy snapshots via GUI.
    Is this normal or a 7 glitch o_O

    Cheers

    Maybe you need to recreate the schedule after you applied the exclusion.

    This way it works.
    But should it really only work this way or is it a Windows 7 glitch?

    Cheers
