Which VSS Provider is Registry Backup using?
« on: March 21, 2016, 01:58:54 pm »
Hi Shane.

I use StorageCraft's disk imaging software called StorageProtect Desktop.  It comes with it's own VSS Provider.   Below are my Registry entries for the VSS Providers.  I also attached a zip file of the logs created after I ran a Registry Backup.  Can you tell from your logs which Provider I am using, MSS VSS or STC VSS?

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\VSS\Providers]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\VSS\Providers\{24602736-bed9-4619-91b0-243447c6409c}]

Microsoft Software Shadow Copy provider 1.0

You will see in the files folder of the program it uses the vshadow exes from MS to make the shadow copies :-) (They are just renamed since there are different ones)
