VSS Unlock

VSS Unlock allows a user to copy system protected files and files that have been locked by other processes. The user has the option to copy a single file or a directory containing locked files.

VSS Unlock uses The Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS). VSS Unlock performs the following steps in order to carry out the copy process:

  1. Identifies which volume the file or directory is located on
  2. Creates a snap shot of the volume
  3. Mounts the snapshot within Explorer
  4. Copies the file or directory
  5. Unmounts and deletes the snapshot
Visual C++ 2017 Redistributables must be installed on the machine running the application.

Trouble Shooting
If VSS Unlock hangs at “Initialising VSS” then make sure Visual C++ 2017 Redistributables is installed on the machine.
