It is known to all that once we modify and cover original file, the original file will disappear from the computer. Nevertheless, sometimes we error may occur after we modified the original and we have no idea where the problem is and want to operate the original file. But unfortunately, we don't have a copy or original file, which is really frustrating and troublesome.

Volume shadow copy service
Volume shadow copy service is a technology included in Microsoft Windows that allows taking manual or automatic backup copies or snapshots of data, even if it has a lock, on a specific volume at a specific point in time over regular intervals. It is implemented as a Windows service called the Volume Shadow Copy service. A software VSS provider service is also included as part of Windows to be used by Windows applications. Shadow Copy technology requires the file system to be NTFS to be able to create and store shadow copies. Shadow Copies can be created on local and external (removable or network) volumes by any Windows component that uses this technology, such as when creating a scheduled Windows Backup or automatic System Restore point.
