I’m wondering if anyone can clarify how Duplicati and VSS should be working together. I want to back up my Outlook .ost files, however Duplicati only successfully backs them up when Outlook is not running.
I just re-imaged a laptop with the Windows 10 image provided by Microsoft, fully patched it, and installed Duplicati. By default, the VSS service is not running and set to “Manual” (maybe that’s typical?). I turned it on, but no change. I’m running Duplicati as a service with the local system account.
I’m just curious if this is expected behavior or there’s a setup step I’m missing to enable the use of VSS.
