Locks on source files to backup

Apologies if this is a dupe, but can’t find an existing answer.
I’m looking at using restic to backup a heap of files, some of which may be actively read from/written to by other processes by the time a backup gets to it. That in itself may not be a problem backup-wise but it may be if the backup process creates some sort of read lock while it backs up said files. Does anyone know if this is the case? All the information on locks I’ve been able to find are around repo locks not source file locks.

restic does not lock files when reading them as part of the backing up process, so it should be fine.

Brilliant. Thanks for a quick response. I sifted to the docs and couldn’t find anything on this but this gives the unambiguous answer I was after. Cheers.
