I don't know anything about VSS in particular, but *if* it can create
a consistent snapshot of the entire PostgreSQL cluster's data
directory tree (and other tablespace locations, if they exist), *and*
you are running with fsync = on and full_page_writes = on, then it
should work as a backup technique.
