Do I need to stop everything while the "Microsoft Azure Backup" agent doing a backup job?

Hi everyone,
I guess it is a silly question but I cant find any clear documentation on the following:
I have a win 10 On-Premis phsical actual machine. The machine uses "Microsoft Azure Backup" to weekly backup files and folders.

Can we change the files (i,e, continue to work) while the backup is taking place? or (like in the 1990s, when we had to shut everything down while backing up so files dont get corrupted ?

(I dont care if the snapshot taken to Azure is before or after the changes were made just as long as the backed up file is not somehow corrupted due to the "Hot" backup scenario.)

Hi,

There's no need to stop doing anything while the backup is in progress, the backups nowadays work perfectly fine while working alongside it.


Best regards,
Leon
