Doing a little bit of research a few mins ago, I found I could not accurately track the inception of open/locked file copying in SB(SE)
The nearest I could find was in Feb 2005 where the Change
Stricter checks to make sure VSS is only used when it can be [V188.8.131.520]
is listed - but I cannot find any earlier reference to VSS having been incorporated. I did searches for 'open', 'locked' and 'VSS' but found nothing earlier relevant. I also did a search using the EyeBall Mk-1, which is not always 100% accurate, so if I'm mistaken, please be gentle!
If I'm correct, shouldn't this momentous occasion in SB history be featured?
