Disable "Volume Shadow Copy"

Post by pcready.cl » Fri Feb 05, 2016 4:35 pm

Use the latest version of Backup4all v5.

As I can disable "Disable" Volume Shadow Copy "in my backup jobs?

In the logs I get the following error:

[02/05/2016 13:29:09] Preparation instant
[02/05/2016 13:29:09] Failed to create volume snapshots. Locked files are not copied. The user needs administrative rights to use Volume Shadow Copy

I do not really need to copy locked files.

Thank you!

Yes, you can disable that. Please open Backup Properties->Advanced page. Here you need to uncheck the "Backup open files" option, then press Save.
