believe that this is happening and only on 2003 server.as I know 2003 server keeps shadow coppies of files on it,and I was able always to make backups of files used by other files.the copy process takes place from shadow copies on the server.
but being able to copy files over the ones being used on the server is what astonishing me and I don't have interpretation about that.
thanks
