    Is there a certain folder or something that the shadow copies of current
    files are saved to every time a volume shadow copy is made?

  2. Hello Rich,

    "The files used by Shadow copy will be placed under the C:'System Volume
    Information folder, where you'll find a large (~100mb) file, called tracking.log,
    plus 2 files with a name corresponding to a unique GUID (thanks to Yuval
    Sinai for this information)."
