Hi,


Please make sure the Volume Shadow Copy service is started and working properly.

the VSC service is running (per task manager), but I still cannot backup the outlook file in use. Got exactly the same job log as shown before. Any advice?

just adding to my previous post, I cannot manually copy the pst file either when outlook is running (and the VSC service is running). any advice?

Backing up open files has the following limitations: It works

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

- 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/Volume-Shadow-Copy-Service.pdf
