This is typical for backing up documents that are actively being edited, etc. To handle these scenarios, Microsoft Windows uses the Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) technology that lets users make backup copies of files or volumes, even when they are in use.
Q1: Can I back up only changed files?
A: Yes, we support incremental backup by default, i.e. only new and modified files will be uploaded after the initial backup.
You can also use Block level backup for files that consist of blocks (e.g. Outlook pst-files). Continue reading
