    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 ?

    TIA

    Using XP/SP2 for the above test.
