Problem: The replication job runs into a Text File Busy error during a running job. 

Cause: If the files were in use at the time of the replication, the user will receive this error. 

Solution: This can be fixed by enabling Use Open File Manager when editing the replication job.

Once Use Open File Manager is enabled, the VSS writers will be utilized and will be able to replicate opened files.

Please Note: If the file is NOT VSS aware, Use Open File Manager will not work resolve this issue because no VSS writers can be utilized.
If the server or workstation is running Windows 2000 or Windows XP, this error  is unavoidable as VSS writers were not introduced until Server 2003 and Windows Vista
