Hey,

We are in the process of replacing our desktop hardware and recently purchased some licenses for Transwiz so we could transfer users profiles to the new devices. We have a number of users who forget to log out before we attempt to backup their profile and we would like to avoid having to do forced log off on these users.

We are deploying Transwiz silently via command line and have found that a user profile backup will complete without errors when that user is still logged on. We would like to avoid archiving a profile while the user is still logged in but we might find that we will have to do so in some cases. 

Are there any known issues with backing up a profile while that user is still logged in to the device?

Thanks,

Dan.

Transwiz uses the Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) so you can backup up files that are in use. The users do not need to log off.
