|Subject:||Windows Server Backup and pagefile.sys|

there is the registry key called FilesNotToBackup in
HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\BackupRestore. This key should contain
list of files that are not backed up.
There is an entry for \pagefile.sys
Then I assume tha pagefile.sys should not be contained in the resultant .VHD
But wierd things happen. The pagefile.sys from system volume is actually
in the backup file. I checked by mounting the .VHD file and it also can be
recovered by the Windows Server Backup console.
But when I tried to recover/restore the pagefile.sys from the backup to
alternate location on a disk, the result says 0 KB of 0 KB recovered
(success) but the file is not actually recovered.
What happens exactly?
