In use databases can't be copied with rsync or any file based tool.
The database must be inactive to be copied.  You didn't mention which
kind of database you are using but most have a function to freeze the
database for backups.  I don't know if QNX has LVM functionality but
that can work too.

Also, don't use -c unless you have a really good reason.  It is almost
always a bad idea.
