I imaged my server to a new hard drive last night (acronis true image server 9), everything went fine.  Shortly after I verified email was again running, data was there, etc I started the backup process (backup exec 10)
I looked in the logs this morning and normally a few files are skipped because in use but I got a lot and they are not the normal files that get locked.
The ones that concern me are the exchange files locked
Here is the log

The .DR file required for Intelligent Disaster Recovery is created/updated.

I assume exchange was running some processes after the image and locked these files.  What are these files and should they unlock themselves after a period of time?
I need to make sure that they will backup tonight in case anything happens.  Thakns for any input
