Backup files in shared folder that in use

Hello everyone,

I am encountering an error when trying to back up a folder that is currently in use by a user. My backup software fails to complete the process, presumably because the file is open.

Has anyone experienced a similar issue? How can I configure my backup software to successfully back up files that are in use? Any advice or solutions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Hello yasminaclick,

To resolve the issue, please try using 7zip as your archive format.

Thank you for using SQLBackupAndFTP.

hello Alexander,

Hello yasminaclick,

SQLBackupAndFTP is primarily designed for backing up DBMSs, with the option to backup files and folders being optional.

One suggestion we can offer is to use Before Backup PowerShell scripts to forcefully kill processes that may be blocking files in SQLBackupAndFTP.

Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Thank you, and sorry for the inconvenience.
