Under XP, I had BM set to backup the My Documents folder to a backup drive. BM handled it with no problems.
However, since I "upgraded" to Vista, BM gives me files in use errors.
I realize that Microsoft changed the nature of the "My Documents" folder to include hidden Application Data, etc.
Is there anyway that the next version of BM can "lock" the in-use files before starting the backup (similar to what Second Copy does)?
At this point, I am forced to backup only specific folders such as "Documents", "Favorites", etc.
I have been using BM and Password Agent for years now. I think they are the best and simplest around.

You can exclude these files that are always locked. Most likely you are talking about registry files?

About copying in-use files, I'll investigate this for future release.
