Q: Why the program fails to backup some files?
A: Windows and some other programs may open some files with exclusive share access. In this case the backup program (and
any other program) will fail while trying to copy this file. Solution: close the program that is using the file you are trying to backup.
Q- I would like to backup files that are open exclusively by another application. Is this possible?
A: If some application is working with a file that is open exclusively, there are several things you may try to do:
1) Use a "Before backup" event to close the application and an "After backup" event to open the application again.
2) Microsoft has a script which close all the open files. This can be used as a batch file in a "Before backup" event and seems
to work OK must of the times. This works only in NT based systems, though.
