By default, if the SQL Anywhere VSS writer (dbvss12.exe) is running, then all SQL Anywhere databases can use the VSS service for backups. 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.
