When using the NTBackup utility to reach out and backup files on a network share (not on the server where NTBackup is running), does the Volume Shadowcopy service fail to work in such a situation? As I understand it, NTBackup uses VSC to allow you to back up in-use files, but I am suspecting that it will not do so if the files are on a device other than the local one. I need to verify this, though.
