VSS Windows 7 embedded

Hello,

is it possible to activate the Volume Shadow Copie Service in Windows 7 embedded and how can I make it. I want to install ACRONIS to take a full backup of the system during the runtime.

Thank you in advance for your response.

Kind regards

Thomas Latta

Hi,
Usually, we can activate VSS in Windows 7 following the steps below:
a. Click “Start”, type "services.msc" (without quotation marks) in the Search bar and press Enter.
Note: If UAC (User Account Control) window is prompted for permission to continue, please click “Continue”.
b. Double click “Volume Shadow Copy Service” and switch to “General” tab.
c. Change the “Startup type” to “Automatic” and click “Apply”.
d. Click “Start” and click “OK”.
But it seems difficult to activate it in Windows 7 embedded, you can check the following threads:

Thanks for your time!
