NAME

       borg-with-lock - run a user specified command with the repository lock held

SYNOPSIS

       borg [common options] with-lock [options] REPOSITORY COMMAND [ARGS...]

DESCRIPTION

       This command runs a user-specified command while the repository lock is held.

       It will first try to acquire the lock (make sure that no other operation is running in the
       repo), then execute the given command as  a  subprocess  and  wait  for  its  termination,
       release the lock and return the user command's return code as borg's return code.

       NOTE:
          If  you  copy  a  repository  with the lock held, the lock will be present in the copy.
          Thus, before using borg on the copy from a  different  host,  you  need  to  use  "borg
          break-lock"   on  the  copied  repository,  because  Borg  is  cautious  and  does  not
          automatically remove stale locks made by a different host.
