This article will tell you how to back up MS SQL.
Backing up of MS SQL is an ability to back up a MS SQL database. Only instances which are translated by VSS can be backed up. Before attempting a MS SQL backup, you should migrate to the MS SQL VSS plugin.
- MS SQL Writer is a default part of the MS SQL server and a backup of MS SQL cannot be performed without it. Thus, please, make sure that MS SQL Writer is running correctly.
- We don’t truncate logs in MS SQL, as the MS SQL VSS writer used for the backup does not support that
Choose MS SQL databases (VSS) and click Add
- You can make the necessary selection for the back up and click Save
- The backup process can begin now.
NOTE: If the database uses the Simple Recovery mode, its logs are truncated automatically by the MS SQL server when the database reaches a transaction checkpoint.
