    Is there a way to unregister/remove a file from the VSS repository. Our backup software keeps trying to backup a file that is not available (remote location, backup sw is running as Local System, not going to change that). I know of diskshadow, used that utility to show the list of files that will be backed up as a part of VSS. But that utility doesn't seem to provide any way to unregister/remove files. Need to remove a file from that list. How do files end up on that list anyway?

    Thanks in advance!
