You may receive the following error when you try to make a backup of your database using a third-party backup program:
Unable to backup C:\Program Files\Blackbaud\The Raisers Edge 7\MSDE\MSSQL$RE7_MSDE\LOG\SQLAgent.out or C:\Program Files\Blackbaud\The Raisers Edge 7\MSDE\MSSQL$RE7_MSDE\LOG\Error files
The referenced log files are not required for database backups or restores and cannot be copied while the SQL Server Service is running.
Back up your database using either the Blackbaud Management Console (MSDE versions) or the Enterprise Manager (Enterprise or Standard versions). Once the backup is complete, you can use a third-party tape backup device to copy the backup files.
