Shadow Copy To The Rescue

I have been working on a post on Backup Strategies now that I’ve moved most of my work to Vista and had been doing some experimenting with Vista’s Shadow Copy feature. Well, there’s nothing I can say more about this new feature than to point you to James Kendrick’s recent experiences with Shadow Copy. James had one of those Uh Oh moments that we all fear (and most of us have experienced at some point) when he lost some important data. Or thought he did. One of his readers pointed him to the Shadow Copy feature, and Voila! He’s back up and running. Check it out jk’s experiences here and here and make sure you check out the comments for some different backup strategies his users shared.
