11/05/2015 23:00:03:[1001][E] Unexpected error. Either source or archive folders are invalid[Cannot open file "C:\S Drive Backup\~1001.zip". The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process (Last processed file: "Rec: E:\drive_S\updateprob.txt" Next file to process: "Rec: E:\drive_S\Utility Monitor.xlsx")]

Note this is after a failed update previously, should I have restarted the PC?
APBackup is the only process which would access the folder does it release all its locks after a failure

It runs as a service

It seems that you have two APBackup instances - one runs as a service and the second runs in the normal mode. You have start only one APBackup process - service or as a normal application.

Thanks, I didn't start the non service process, however it runs OK after a re-start of the PC. I'll keep an eye on it.
