Windows 7 Previous Versions and AlphaVSS

Jun 11, 2012 at 5:23 AM



I'm contemplating writing a small filesync app. As you know Windows 7 tracks previous versions of files through VSS. If I understand it right, I can with AlphaVSS get access to files in shadow copies, so my main question is. Can I with AlphaVSS create shadow copies based on external information (i.e. files synced inbound from other systems), so that these files later could be restored with the built in Previous Versions feature in Windows 7?
