Copy locked files with Robocopy using /B parameter

    Question by:

    Topics:

    Hello,
    I want to use the robust file copy utility Robocopy to backup the workstation of my small office network.

    The problem is this utility does not allow to copy files locked especially the files PST of Outlook.

    I am amazed because Robocopy allows the parameter / B which makes a copy in backup mode. But even with this parameter I have an error " ERROR 32 ( 0x00000020 ) ".

    What is necessary to make Robocopy able to copy locked files ?

    Any help will be very appreciated
    Good Question?
