Shadow copy warnings on locked files?

Post by durumdara »

Dear Support!

I tried FB5B309 as alternative of Cobian I used.

Many times I used Mirror (Cobian = Incremental) backup, because I have more than 100000 files to backup, and I want to copy only the changed content.
I have some MS databases (for home pictures), and SVN folders to hold documents with versions.

What I experienced that FB made warnings on myphotos (ms db), and wc.db (svn db), and it couldn't copy it. The MS DB was opened in Manager at that time.
I saw that the backup operation started with "preparing shadow copy" or something similar text, but it failed on copy these contents.

It's very interesting, because Cobian can copy them in Shadow Copy mode. I don't know how, or what is the difference between two systems.
Or maybe FB uses Shadow Copy in Full Backup mode only? I don't know.

What could be the source of the problem?

Thanks for your help:
