Unable to backup open file

Post by IDLSYS »

I have just bought this product as I did read that it would backup open files.
It backs up all the files on the workstation except for the Outlook.pst file
The error is Code 33 - the process cannot access the file because another process has locked a portion of the file.
Please can you let me know how I can back up the outlook files. ????

Backing up open files has the following limitations: It works
- only on Windows XP or newer
- only for users with administrator access rights to copy open files
- only on local hard drives
- only on NTFS formatted partitions
- only if the VSS (Volume Shadow Service) is running and it is properly configured

If all of the above are true and still cannot backup open files please see: http://www.backup4all.com/download/pdf/ ... ervice.pdf
