Backup Fails with database locked

Post by Malhotra » Thu Oct 23, 2014 7:20 am

BACK-UP STARTS and fails immediately with the following error:

"SQL error " DROP TABLE IF EXISTS TempFileVerDelExcluded; DROP TABLE IF EXISTS TempFolderVerDelExcluded; " - database is locked, database is locked (SQL81)"

I have restarted the server but back-up still fails with the same error!

Thoughts/ help/ solution will be appreciated!

Please make sure you have enough permissions to write in that location.
Do you have the same problem if you create a new backup?
