Physical Server Backup and Folder Redirection

Hi, does any body knows if Physical Server Backup Will be able to backup redirected folders (Windows Server GPO Folder Redirection)


Redirected Folders are only accesible by the owner itself, not even administrators or backup operators group can Access those folders without taking ownership.



Thanks!

Hi Gustavo,


Essentially when the backup starts we trigger a call to the Windows Server to create a ShadowCopy (VSS), which we then read from in order to backup the data. Altaro Physical Server Backup will be able to backup any data that is actually included in this ShadowCopy.
