Hello Shira,
looks like one of the jobs was still working keeping files locked from copying. Tape job should retry to copy backups, but if the source job is copying for the long time, the source is to be skipped.
Workaround is to make proper scheduling.
Thanks!

Do you mean the tape job is the only one running at the moment when you get this message?
