I'm trying to copy opened file in Windows 10 by ShadowCopy V2.02 by Runtime Software. It works on other files but when I try to copy from this path C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Search\Data\Applications\Windows\Windows.edb it copies nothing. No mistakes, no result. I guess it's somehow connected with directory, I mean In that path are located important for OS files, so could Windows restrict ability to make a shadow copy?
Have a look at this Registry Key :
There are three Registry keys underneath that key :
If you examine these keys,
you might find the one that is preventing you from backing up that data.
If you would decide to remove some keys,
then first make a backup by exporting the entire key (BackupRestore).
Best to make a system restore point as well.
Mind you, i use windows 8, so there could be diferences in windows 10 for that key.
Be careful with what you do in the Registry.
