There's an option in the symantec backup exec settings, which copies open files.**_aofo_wp.pdf
Although u have to buy a seperate license for this feature, Symantec sure has a way to rip off its customers but after all the backup solution is good i guess. I had an invite to one of there product review sessions, i asked the symantec guy why it happens.
