Because they're in use. IIS uses them. You don't need them, you can certainly back up the contents without them. They're part of what FP extensions creates.

If you back up without them, and have to restore the site, you'll need to re-apply the FP extensions when you put all the files back, and make sure that you have all the permissions/settings correct. But you don't need them to back up the site files.

Generally, I recommend you NOT backup anything in that directory tree. Production should be left alone. It is exposed.

Rather,, create, design, develop elsewhere. Then, copy it over to the prime server. The original is now an instant backup, and it is not exposed (so if defacement, you get a measure of quick resource).

Also, many won't FP there either, similar reasons, among them it makes separate S/A copy that gets reapplied whether changes made or not. Thus, it can undo a fix real quick.
