Hi,
Backing up open files has the following limitations: It works

- only on Windows XP, Windows 2003 Server, Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 2008

- 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
