Is it possible to extend an existing volume onto another volume while the Microsoft backup program is saving data on one of the volumes?

Is it possible to extend an existing volume onto another volume while the Microsoft backup program is saving data on one of the volumes?

The drive that where the data is being backed up to is too small to hold the entire backup job. I have another hard drive that I would like to use to extend the current hard drive onto without having to cancel the existing running backup job.

Is this possible?

It is but I don't see how are you going to extend the drive without stopping backup process. BTW, do you mean by backup job a scheduled task but not live process?

No, the backup is a live process.

Then better you don't do that.
In any case, if the backup does not fit the storage then it will interrupt itself. So save your time - interrupt it and rebuild the storage. Take new backup.
