Is there a status/test setting to see if SyncBack copies locked files?

I like to be sure that SyncBack copies locked files. Is there a status info anywhere?

Hi,

The ‘Copied, deleted, renamed, and changed’ section of the log file shows the list of files that are copied during a profile run. Sorry, but there is no indication on whether a file is a locked file or not. However, if you know the full path of a locked file then you can search for it in the ‘Copy/delete…’ section (or Error section) of the log file to view the status of that file.

To view the log file (after the profile run): select the profile from SyncBackPro’s main-window > right click and select View Log > Newest from the pop-up menu.

Thank you.

Is there a default windows file that is locked all the time? Or can I lock a file like that to test it:
