Re: Live backups?
You are right, if Alventis (or Designer for that matter) has a data table open, the physical files comprising this table may be locked, so you may not be able to copy them using a file manager (Windows Explorer or whatever).
The workaround is to use InfoSet Export instead. This works on a different level (with data and not with files), so it should work fine even if the table of interest is open. And since InfoSet Export zips the exported "output", it's not a bad way of making backups in the first place.
