[NTISP] Backup programs

We might have covered this one in the past but I wasn't paying attention. :)

I have NT servers that constantly have open files which do not get backed up
properly. I cannot take these offline (mail/authentication servers) for any
appreciable length of time.

I have been using NovaStor's backup program because it allows me to backup
to another disk on the network, which for me is preferable. Unfortunately,
their open file solution ($595) only works with tape drives.

I think Seagate's open file solution for Exec is the same way: tape drives

Is there a solution that can handle open files (btreive and ODBC) safely and
effectively in a backup so the backup can be done without shutting down
functions of the server?

Thanks for your comments.
