I have recently been doing some work to make Brackup work better in
Windows, some of which I committed.
However, I also wrote a wrapper script which uses the Microsoft utility
"VSHADOW" to create a volume shadow copy before running the backup,
to avoid problems with files that currently have exclusive locks held by
other applications. I was hesitant to share it because it's a bit yucky,
but I suppose it could be useful to others as a starting point.
Is anyone interested in this? I'm not sure it belongs in the main
brackup repository, but I guess I could put it somewhere else.
