I have one machine with Hyper-V (not the bare metal version - the Windows 2008 OS version) that we are experimenting with.
I would love to backup from the host OS and not from each individual virtual machine. I would love to be able to simply make a copy of the virtual drives and/or virtual machine, to my backup drive.
To do this, I need to use Shadow Copy Services... I understand... but how?
It should be easy enough to do with RoboCopy, but RoboCopy doesn't support Shadow Copy Services.
What is the next best thing? What is the easiest way to backup these computers to another mapped drive?
