The AltSnapshotFolder property returns or sets the path to the folder that contains the initial snapshot for a subscription.
object.AltSnapshotFolder [= path]
|object||Expression that evaluates to an object in the Applies To list.|
|path||Path to alternate snapshot folder.|
The snapshot folder path must include a UNC or FTP designator, for example:
objMerge.AltSnapshotFolder = "file:\\Distributor\Backup\Snapshots" objDistr.AltSnapshotFolder = _ "ftp://distributor.company.com/backup/snapshots,1433"
It is recommended you use the sp_copysnapshot stored procedure to copy a subscription manually.
HRESULT AltSnapshotFolder(BSTR pVal);
HRESULT AltSnapshotFolder(BSTR* pVal);
