Visual Basic >> Using Volume Shadow Copy Service from VB6

Hi all.

I would like to know how to make use of the Volume Shadow Copy Service
in Windows XP and Windows 2003 from Visual Basic 6. My ultimate goal is
to be able to copy files that are normally locked on the disk. From
what I understand, I should be able to make a snapshot with VSS and
then copy files such as NTUSER.DAT which are normally locked from the
snapshot instead of the disk.

One favor I would like to respectfully ask. Please don't suggest that I
not do this, that I don't need to backup NTUSER.DAT, or tell me there
is other software to do this. This is the task I am assigned and I must
complete it. Thank you and I apologize if that sounds rude. :)
