VssFreeSnapshotProperties function (vsbackup.h)

The VssFreeSnapshotProperties function is used to free the contents of a VSS_SNAPSHOT_PROP structure as part of managing its life cycle. The VSS_SNAPSHOT_PROP structure is typically obtained by using the IVssBackupComponents::GetSnapshotProperties method or the IVssSoftwareSnapshotProvider::GetSnapshotProperties method.

This function can also be used to initialize a VSS_SNAPSHOT_PROP structure before use or before freeing the structure.

Note  This function is exported as VssFreeSnapshotPropertiesInternal, but you should call VssFreeSnapshotProperties, not VssFreeSnapshotPropertiesInternal.
