  • Hi,

    Thanks for your response.

    You can only enable Shadow Copies of Shared Folders on a per-volume basis—that is, you cannot select specific shared folders and files on a volume to be copied or not copied.

  • Hi,

    Thanks for your posting.

    Shadow copies are taken for a complete volume.

    When you click revert button in shadow copy, it revert an entire volume.

    This is by design.

    Please refer to this:

    Revert an entire volume shadow copy to a previous version

  • let me clarify, a folder within a share was selected to recover and it reverted the entire drive/volume instead.  an entire volume revert was not selected.
