Although it has several limitations, it provides me with all the functionality I need.
If others find VBackup useful, I will look at expanding its functionality.
Some of the limitations of VBackup are:
- It does not support restartable copies
It does not copy Security Descriptors/ACL (NTFS)
It does not support VSS/shadow copy. In particular, it will not copy files that are locked (eg, Outlook .pst files)
On Windows 7 and Vista, it may need to be run as Administrator (depending on the directory that is to be copied)
It ignores volume mounts/reparse points
You can only restore to an empty (or non-existent) directory
