Hi everyone,
What is the effect of Unmounting the file systems after system BACKUP (Option 21) ?
Below is the description of the parameter to unmount or not to unmount using option 20 from Go Save.   
                   Define Save System and User Data Defaults
Type choices, press Enter.                                  
  Unmount file systems . . . . .   N            Y=Yes, N=No
    All dynamically mounted file systems are unmounted    
    prior to the start of the save.  The User Defined File
    Systems (UDFS) must be unmounted in order to save the 
    attributes associated with the file system.  If the   
    UDFS is mounted, the objects in the directory that are
    mounted over are not saved; only the objects in the 
    UDFS are saved.  For recovery purposes the            
    recommendation is to unmount the UDFSs.  Note that the
    file systems are not mounted again after the save is  
    The dynamically mounted file systems are not unmounted
    prior to the start of the save.
