Hi cmec:
It means that a process is using this file, and the backup program is blocked from reading it.
I would not worry much about it.

It means the file was in use at the time of the backup.  BE has skipped over the file as it was unable to lock it long enough to back it up.  

The folder in question, I believe is related to SUS/WUS.  Since BE couldn't gain exclusive access to the folder, it doesn't back it up.  

Do you have the Open File Option in BE?

how would i check if i have the open file option?

You will have to go to Tools menu and select "serial numbers and installations" option from that.. it opens an other window,.. click next, it will ask to choose option remote or local.. go with default selections and click next.. on the next screen you will see the installed options in a list and it will ask you to give the serial key to install new options..
see if you already have it installed (check in the list if it is there) or install it if you have the license..
