Backups are created with the warnings like below:
PLESK_WARN: Warning: domain “example.com”
[dc02b770-506b-4f9a-8f54-b3164a6b8bd6]: Unable to get attributes of the file C:inetpubvhostsexample.comlogsiisW3SVC18u_extend85.log: The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process. The file will not be archived. [:132641848]
Plesk Backup Manager cannot access the file as it is being opened by IIS. Windows does not allow access to open files from other processes.
This is a minor warning, and it can be ignored. However, it is possible to exclude log files from a backup. For example:
- Go to Plesk > Tools & Settings > Backup Manager > Back Up.
- Check the box Exclude log files.
- Press OK.
To exclude Exclude log files for Scheduled Backups go under Plesk > Tools & Settings > Backup Manager > Schedule.
