Exclusive Treatment of Open Files

Novosoft Office Backup is able to back up open files from most applications. By default Novosoft Office Backup will try to backup all files, no matter open or closed. However, if a file has a share or an exclusive lock on it, Novosoft Office Backup may not be able to perform a backup operation. As for the open files that are not locked, Novosoft Office Backup will back them up, but the resulting backup file may be different from the original and thus file integrity will be disturbed. That is why in step 4 of Novosoft Office BackupWizard Advanced backup settings ("File-specific settings" tab) there is an option Open files exclusively. When checked, this option will make Novosoft Office Backup skip open files and avoid the loss of file integrity. It's up to you to decide whether you want to do the backup of all files including open files, at the cost of losing some of their integrity, or skip those files, but be sure that each backup file is identical to the source. However, "read only" open files will always be backed up smoothly.
