Safe to backup FMS live files with Windows Server 2012?

I know FM best practices are to not backup FMS live files with anything other than FMS schedules. I’m working with an IT person who says that built into Windows 2012 Server is a snap shot backup which he insist is instantaneous and can’t damage live files. He uses it all the time for sql databases.


Is this IT person correct? Is there a difference in backing up live sql databases versus FileMaker?
