58450: Acronis Disaster Recovery Service: Taking X-Ray from Snapshot Agent for VSS

Last update: 29-07-2016

X-Ray is a special command in DiskSafe applications that gathers diagnostic information for analysis. You may be asked for X-Ray output by an Acronis Support representative.

It contains standard system information like Windows event logs, msinfo32.exe output, information about drives, FalconStor registry values, details about drivers, VSS details and so on. This information is required for troubleshooting and/or for escalating an issue to the FalconStor support. If you have installed the Snapshot Agent for VSS, you will be asked to provide X-Ray from it as well as from DiskSafe and SAN Disk Manager.
