How to backup a SQL Server database to NAS drive
One option in terms of locations where to backup your database is a NAS drive. In order to backup a SQL Server database to NAS drives, we recommend using SQLBackupAndFTP due to how easy it is to set this up, along with other options to make your backup process more efficient.
All that you have to do is set up a backup schedule and a corresponding backup location where you want to backup a SQL Server database to NAS drives as we will show in the screenshots below.
If accessing the network folder on the NAS requires an authentication and/or authorization step, then you have the possibility to add these verification credentials at the bottom of the window in the user name and password fields.
After adding the details for the connection to the NAS you can use the Test button in order to verify that the connection is indeed correct and working.
All that remains now is to press the “Save&Close” button and set up a backup schedule, if you don’t have this already set up.
