Hi All,


Looking to use Microsoft's native VSS snapshot revert to revert a volume to a previous snapshot. This is simple on a data volume, but I can't get it working on the OS volume because it's in use.


diskshadow.exe or vshadow.exe are normally what I would use, but neither of these work in a Windows PE environment. Has anyone been able to get these working?

There was some work discussed here for the PE 3 builds:




It seems that a few files need to be patched to workaround the detection of running under a PE.


No idea  if there are more recent news on the matter or if any alternatives exist for newer PE's.
