    In making a back-up, open files are skipped. Usually, this resulkts from some kind of error occuring during the execution of an application that didn't close the file for some unknown reason. I want to force any open files to be closed before the back-up starts. Is there any kind of operating system command I can use to do this? If not, can a stand-alone program be written to do it?
