Incident Response with EZTools - VSCMount

VSCmount is bundled with EZTools. This tool can be used to mount all VSCs on a drive letter to a given mount point.

Volume Shadow Copy (VSC) is a feature in Windows that allows the system to take a snapshot or backup of your files, volumes, etc.

From an incident response perspective, we may want to gather or recover evidence of a deleted file and compare the system to its previous state before the detection happened.
