How to Delete shadowstorage using AlphaVSS

May 24, 2011 at 8:17 AM


I want to delete the shadowstorage. To do that I can execute command "vssadmin delete shadowstorage /for=<ForVolumeSpec> [/on=<OnVolumeSpec>] [/quiet] "

I want to do the same thing using alpha VSS API. Can anybody tell me how to do this using alpha VSS?

Have a look at IVssBackupComponents::DeleteSnapshots on MSDN. If this is what you want the same method is available in AlphaVSS.

If you want to find out the drive letter and such you probably need to query the existing snapshots first to find the one you want.
