permit to bkup VMs live when they are running
I don't trust backups that are made while something is using a file
(and the virtual disk is just one big file). To do it properly, the host
would need to, somehow, freeze access to the file, while it is
backed up, and that can take some time, depending on how big it is.

VSS (shadow copy provider) is here since 2008 of before
it's a *consolidated* technology

i use it with power shell to copy VM under Hyper-V and WinServ
and it works *perfectly*, never had an issue in years..
