Windows 2012 R2 shadow copy problem

    Question

  • Hi All,

    I'm encounter a weird problem is shadow copy did not work after perform file server migration.

    The migration is using robocopy to migrate files from old volume to new volume,after this rename drive letter and remove old volume. Then Configure shadow copy and schedule it to run on weekday, check the vssadmin command show it work but when users try to restore files from previous version tab, it show does not show up previous file. Anyone encounter the same issue as me?

    Below is the output command show shadow copy create on G:\ drive.

    vssadmin list shadowstorage
