what happens when while backup file is accessed?

Recommended Posts

Hello. Question:  I dont use open-file option, because my system isnt VSS compatible and I dont like partially modified file backups. So, I make backub with open-file option disabled. I have very big files and backup takes long time. Me interest what happens with backup when while backup the same file is opened for writing by some application.

You might get a half-updated file on the backup.

 

If you turn on verification, you can see if this indeed happened.
