Backing up system state.
Can we backup System drive ( C drive ) and system state ,if we don't have AOFO installed on the server ?
Actually we have a windows 2000 server without AOFO installed on it .
For 2003 and above servers we can backup system state and system drives even if there is no AOFO installed on the server as we can select Microsoft Volume Shadow copy provider in backup job properties while creating a job.
How the open file technology works? how the software knows if a file is in open state or not ?
