Frequently Asked Questions

How does SqlBak make backups?

It depends on the type and location of your SQL Server. For local, a standard SQL Server backup (.bak) will be created. For a remote server, SqlBak generates an SQL script based on a temporarily created snapshot. This is necessary to ensure transactional consistency. More details on how to backup SQL Server.

Can the backups be sent to different destinations?

Yes, this is the correct way to store the backups. Don't put all your eggs in one basket. SqlBak makes it very easy to set up. See How to backup SQL Server databases to multiple destinations. In addition, in SqlBak you can mark a destination as an emergency one. In this case, the backups will be uploaded to it only if the backups could not be transferred to the main destination.

How can the backups that were created via SqlBak be restored?

It is very easy to do. All you need is to select the backup that should be restored from the list and press one button. This is especially useful if you run differential or transaction log backups – SqlBak downloads all the needed backups and restores them. Here's a simple guide on how to restore a database.

Is it possible to backup local folders along with databases?

Yes, while setting up a backup job, you can select any number of local folders for which the backups will be performed along with the databases.

Can the SQL Server databases be automatically restored to another server?

Sure, it can be achieved by configuring the "Restore tasks" in your backup job. After the restore, you can run a SQL script in the restored database, for example, to delete confidential data. That option is very useful for setting up a test server.
You can even backup SQL Server on Windows and restore it on Linux (or vice versa). The article How to Copy SQL Server Databases from Windows to Linux describes how to do it via SSMS and using SqlBak.
