    Can anyone point me at some reference material on Microsoft Access' support
    for the Volume ShadowCopy Service in WinXP Pro and Win2003 Server, please?
    I am particularly interested in any information on backup of open databases
    and whether the standard Microsoft OS software-based snapshot copy support
    provides more than "crash-consitent" backup support (i.e., VSS "Writer"
    support) for Access / SQL databases at various software release levels.

    If Access doesn't support VSS, can anyone tell me whether MSDE (aka SQL
    Server Lite) has VSS "Writer" support? What versions of SQL Server
    provide VSS support for open databases?

    Please respond to the newsgroup. Thanks in advance for any assistance.
