How to backup all filesystem data on a Windows NetWorker Client without backing up the System State Savesets

How to backup all filesystem data on a Windows NetWorker 7.6.1  Client without backing up the System State Savesets such as:
  • VSS USER DATA
  • VSS OTHER
  • VSS SYSTEM FILESET
  • VSS ASR DISK
  • VSS SYSTEM BOOT
  • VSS SYSTEM SERVICES
In the ‘saveset’ field in the NetWorker client configuration, enter the keyword:
 all-ntfs
 This will cause all local NTFS filesystems to be backed up for this client while excluding the VSS system savesets (which are normally backed up if using the standard All keyword). 
Using only all-ntfs will not protect the Windows system state in any NetWorker version.  Disaster Recovery will not be possible for those NetWorker clients using only this keyword if the System savesets are not defined in a separate client instance for regular backup.
  • FAT32 volumes will are not backed up using this keyword.
  • In NetWorker 7.6.2, this keyword is no longer necessary as the VSS System savesets are no longer backed up as part of the ‘All’ keyword and are not needed for Windows disaster recovery.  These VSS savesets can be backed up when specified explicitly in the saveset field.
