Previous Versions/Shadow Copies



So after many years of perfect reliability from my HP MediaSmart EX475 (WHS v1) it has finally started to die (randomly shuts off every few days with no error logging, and it's on a UPS).

But the good news is I've now built myself a new ground-up server running Windows Server Essentials 2012 R2 with DrivePool and Scanner, and so far it's all looking good.


Whilst checking through the WSE features I noted that the Pool Drive (virtual drive) had Previous Versions turned ON and the physical drives had it turned off. My understanding was that Previous Versions was not supported by DrivePool, particularly on the virtual drive, so I turned it off.

Am I correct in thinking that it is not supported on the virtual disk (I'm running RC)?

Is it supported/does it work on the physical disks and therefore the files that make up the pool?


Thanks in advance.
