Backups for Minecraft not working with AMP backups - file in use cannot copy it.

I'm having an issue where the backup feature of AMP only works when my minecraft server is off.

Is there a setting I can change so that it will backup correctly while the server is running?

Thanks in advance for your assistance!

There's a tweak that needs implementing in AMP to handle this. It's supposed to do a save-all save-off first before starting the backup, but the backup plugin doesn't know anything about Minecraft so it doesn't do this.
