Creating and Managing Snapshots and Schedules

Applies To: Microsoft iSCSI Software Target

With Microsoft iSCSI Software Target, you can create and manage snapshots as part of a comprehensive backup and recovery system. Snapshots are shadow copies that are built using the Volume Shadow Copy Service technology. These point-in-time, read-only snapshots provide data protection between backups and provide a static image for use with backup software.

To automate the creation of snapshots and the mounting of iSCSI virtual disks for regular backups, you can use the Schedule Snapshot Wizard to schedule snapshots and make the snapshots available on the local computer.
