Hi,
I have just installed FBAckup on one of our machines within our network which has Active Directory. I did manage to backup Outlook even when it was open from a client to a directory within a Server when I logged in as administrator on the client machine. The Backup is failed when I tried to Backup Outlook from a client machines which I have logged In as normal user (no administrative right).
See the error below:

Any suggestion of how can I solve this problem in order to backup opened Outlook to a folder on the Backup Server.
Many thanks for the help.

If you don't have administrator rights, you cannot back up open files.
Backup open files feature works

- only on Windows XP, Windows 2003 Server or Windows Vista

- 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

Do you know you can monitor your backups remotely with Backup4all Monitor? You can read more here: https://www.backup4all.com/backup4all-monitor.html
