By default, all SQL Anywhere databases can use the VSS service for backups if the SQL Anywhere VSS writer (dbvss12.exe) is running. You can use VSS without the SQL Anywhere VSS writer to back up databases. However, you might need to use the
full SQL Anywhere recovery procedures to restore those databases. To prevent a database server from participating in the VSS
service, include -vss- when starting the database server.
