VSS Errors - Summary



Macrium Reflect uses the Windows Volume Shadow Services (VSS) to take snapshots of the file system prior to taking images and backing up files. As a result of this, Macrium Reflect is not supported on Windows operating systems prior to Windows XP SP1 and Server 2003 since they do not incorporate this service.
