I'm backing up an NT workstation by SMB-mounting it's disks to
a linux machine, then using the linux machine to tar workstation's files
to tape. This seems to work fine for files which aren't in use on the
NT workstation. Many files, however, cause tar to generate errors like:
tar: read error at byte 0, reading 7680 bytes, in file
/mnt/WINDOWS/SYSTEM/DOSAPP.FON : Text file busy
Is there a way around this, or is it just not possible to back up "open"
files on the NT workstation by this method?
Thanks in advance,
