    Unanswered: database backup file size

    How does backup database command works? I don't see size of database backup file increasing while backup is in progress OR is it locked till the backup is finished.

    Thanks.

    The size of the backup file (or files) is pre-calculated and the space is allocated before the actual backup starts. You will not see the size change while the backup is running.
