Does Shadow Copy lock files during the scheduled task?

We currently have a scheduled task that runs Shadow copy service twice a day, 7am and 12pm on the main production file server. Users are reporting various random "Can't read file" errors for around 20 minutes after the scheduled task has kicked off.

Errors range from "Disk Is Full" to "Access Denied" and come from a varity of different applications including Windows Explorer. All of them are trying to access files on this server. I've checked file permissions and disk space but I am convinced that it has something to do with Shadow Copy.

Can anyone offer any advice?
