What can SQL Backup And FTP do?

SQL Backup And FTP is MS SQL Server backup software that runs scheduled backups (full, differential or transaction log) of SQL Server or SQL Server Express databases (any version), runs file/folder backup, zips and encrypts the backups, stores them on a network or on an FTP server or in the cloud (Amazon S3 and others we're constantly adding more), removes old backups, and sends an e-mail confirmation on the job's success or failure. It can also backup remote/hosted databases using script backup.

How is SQLBackupAndFTP used?

SQLBackupFTP is ideal for any SQL Server database from which backups have to be sent daily to a remote FTP server. It is especially useful for SQL Server Express 2005 and SQL Server Express 2008, since they don't have built-in in tools for backup, but it can be used in any SQL Server Version.

  • Local Instances when SQLBackupAndFTP is installed on the server (Backups are done using BACKUP DATABASE command)
  • If you use shared hosting and can connect to your SQL server using SQL Management Studio (SQLBackupAndFTP generates script (T-SQL) files to restore database)

When it should not be used

SQLBackupAndFTP is made to be simple. While for majority if users this is a huge advantage, some specific configurations are not handled. You should not use SQLBackupAndFTP if
