[Box Backup] Win32 locked files, registry, etc.

Unfortunately no - I wish this subject of open files on win32 was that
simple. What this does is promote the application being run (i.e.
boxbcakup) to a backup program, which overrides security permissions. To
do so the user it is run as (i.e. Administrator) must have backup
operator permissions. Then any file which has not permissions for a user
to read will be overridden, there are also other uses like not hitting
the security log in certain situations, but for now Outlook, Registry
etc is still a problem.

For now you still have to use other tools to create backup files first.

Does this mean that open/locked files will be backed up?  I was reading=20
a little about this flag and wasn't sure if using this flag would allow=20
box backup (on a windows client) to backup open files (i.e., outlook=20
email files while outlook is open).
