Help with VSS backups - Freeze/Thaw control

Hey everyone.

I have been revisiting our backup strategy, and spotted that IRIS supports VSS (Volume Shadow Copy Service) in Windows. This is quite attractive as an approach, as it automatically calls the external freeze and thaw commands.

However when calling these manually, there's quite a few parameters that can be set, and the documentation around VSS only states that the freeze/thaw commands are called.

Is there a way of controlling the parameters used, or at the very least know what the defaults are?

Also, does the backup history also get updated automatically, or would this need to be manually scripted in?

Hey everyone.

From speaking with WRC, it would appear that the defaults are used.
