  • HI
     
    will the server still do a proper backup if i'm playing or using the computer at the same time as the backup?

    thanks in advance

  • Hi,
    yes it will do - this is what Volume Shadow copies are for. (On the other side, if these fail, no backup will succeed even for an idle computer.)
