Xp client user connected to windows server03 wants to use Volume shadow copy service but its not showing on the Volumes Properties
where the shared folder is located . Is this feature disabled in XP machine ? or the have to configure in some other ways

Now my question is how a user can use the VSS service on the Client machine ?

twclient already installed on the XP machine for the previous versions tab
The Client XP machine is in the network .

    If shadow copies are enabled on the server that's all you need to do.

    Users can access their files / folders via their user folders on the server.

    You may need to access these files via a UNC path eg: \\servername\sharename\user-folder

    On the server you must view it via a UNC path as above.

    You can right-click on the files / folder and the previous versions tab should be visible.
