Windows 7 has the ability to support Previous Versions lust like Windows XP and Vista did on a share hosted on a 2003 or 2008 server. The difference is that the shadow copy can now be a local drive. Thanks to a little help from Thomas Lee and a posting on the Win32_ShadowCopy from MSDN, you can force a Windows 7 to create a shadow copy. The actual lines of PowerShell code are below.
# get static method
# create a new shadow copy
"Creating a new shadow copy"
You can attempt to run this remotely by using PowerShell V2 remoting capability
