Imports a transportable shadow copy from a loaded metadata file into the system.
[IMPORTANT] Before you can use this command, you must use the load metadata command to load a DiskShadow metadata file.
- Transportable shadow copies aren't stored on the system immediately. Their details are stored in a Backup Components Document XML file, which DiskShadow automatically requests and saves in a .cab metadata file in the working directory. Use the set metadata command to change the path and name of this XML file.
The following is a sample DiskShadow script that demonstrates the use of the import command:
#Sample DiskShadow script demonstrating IMPORT SET CONTEXT PERSISTENT SET CONTEXT TRANSPORTABLE SET METADATA transHWshadow_p.cab #P: is the volume supported by the Hardware Shadow Copy provider ADD VOLUME P: CREATE END BACKUP #The (transportable) shadow copy is not in the system yet. #You can reset or exit now if you wish. LOAD METADATA transHWshadow_p.cab IMPORT #The shadow copy will now be loaded into the system.
