    Shadow Copies on Windows 2008 R2 NFS

    R2B Enthusiast

       

      I am using a Windows 2008 R2 server to host an NFS datastore for an ESX host.  I am just storing ISOs, templates and the like.  I have Windows Shadow Copies enabled on the Windows volume because there are other folder that I need to have shadow copies available for.

       

       

      When I browse the datastore in VCenter, I see the shadow copies as folders named .@GMT followed by the date and time.  I know these are Windows shadow copies because they appear and disappear if I create or delete a shadow copy from the Windows server.  My question - is there a way to suppress that in the VCenter view?  It's not a huge detail but may be confusing to other admins.

       

       

      Thanks.
