After you make file and folder selections and the job is submitted for backup, the Linux Agent automatically makes a snapshot of the volume or volumes. Making snapshot of a volume provides a point-in-time record of the data. When it creates a snapshot, the Linux Agent uses snapshot technologies to momentarily suspend write activity to a volume so that a snapshot of the volume can be created. During the backup, files can be open and data can be changed.
