Veeam Backup problem

I have Veeam backing up locally to a NAS and want to get it to backup to our other site (100 Mb link)

I have set up the Backup repository etc. but when I run it I get error:
"Error: Client error: The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process. Failed to create or open file"

Can anybody help?

Big Business Goals? Which KPIs Will Help You

The most successful MSPs rely on metrics – known as key performance indicators (KPIs) – for making informed decisions that help their businesses thrive, rather than just survive. This eBook provides an overview of the most important KPIs used by top MSPs.

You will need a proxy server at the remote site.

CIFS (SMB) Share
CIFS (SMB)shares do not support Veeam agents, therefore data sent to the SMB share is written
directly from a proxy server assigned to the job (by default, the role of such a proxy server is
performed by the Veeam Backup server). However, if you plan to move VM data to an offsite CIFS
repository over a WAN link, it is recommended that you deploy an additional proxying Windows
server in the remote site, closerto the CIFS repository. Veeam Backup & Replication will deploy a
Veeam agent on that server, which will improve data transfer performance:the efficient Veeam
traffic stream will be sent between two proxies while keeping the CIFS traffic local to the storage
