What is System State Backups or Shadow Copy Components


This is a Two Stage Process 
1) The Shadow copy components is first 'exported' to some files on the disk.
2)  Then these files are backed up
Reason :- 
The Shadow copy components is like a running database , We cannot backup a running database just by coping the files. So, the data in the Shadow Copy Component is 'exported' to flat files in a form that it can be restored from. This flat file are created on the disk , then writes these flat files to tape.
