Backup and Sync at same time

Hi, the Backup is scheduled every night at 8pm, and remote users are also syncing over night, is there a issue with Users syncing at the same time as a database is being backed up?

 

Cheers

No. ACT!'s SQL engine can handle this. It doesn't need to lock the database to backup, although performance for the sync maybe be a bit slow at the time

Just a thought. As mike said, you would probably be fine. however, if you are setting sync and backups via the scheduler. Why not just skip the 8pm timeframe. Better yet, schedule your syncs first so your backup has all of the days activities in it.
