Backup job failed -File in use Error 32

Sometime backup job failed with the following error:

Alert description: BackupDiskFile::CreateMedia: Backup device 'xxx.bak' failed to create. Operating system error 32(The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.).

Here if we see the error, it clearly states that the file is in use somewhere and for this reason backup job failed. Generally we creates backup maintenance plan to take backup and after backup completes successfully we also include the maintenance cleanup task, which maintains the retention period of old backup files to keep our Drive space free.
