    Hello everyone,

    For our small company, we have about 20 computers. about 10 of which are important computers with important employees with important emails. Every night, we run a backup of our Domain Controller. The DC is where we keep our outlook PST Files (as well as everyone’s “Documents” folders).

    My questions are as follows:
    -If someone is using their email during a backup, does it skip that file all together?
    -If someone was logged in, and timed out due to inactivity, it simply locks the computer. Does this lock setting close out the use of that PST File for proper backup?

    I am under the impression that if the user is logged in during, or if it is simply locked out, there will be NO BACKUP for those PST Files. Is this safe to assume?

    Is there a way in Server 2008 to setup an Automatic Logoff after a period of inactivity? many forums are referring to the WINEXIT Screen saver provided with 2003.

    Any questions and advice are welcome and appreciated!
    Thank you for your time.
