Using Shadow Copies on Clients

After you configure shadow copying, you must install the client on computers throughout the organization. The client installs a new tab called Previous Versions on files and folders that are shared.

Obtaining and Installing the Client

Before users can access previous versions, the client must be installed on their computer. Two clients are available:

  • Previous Versions Client

  • Shadow Copy Client

You can use Group Policy or SMS to distribute either client. You can also simply copy the file to a user's computer. Both clients are made available as MSI packages that require Microsoft Windows Installer 2 or later, which is available automatically on Microsoft Windows XP or later versions of the Windows operating system.
