SQL Backup Master is a software application built specifically for helping you perform database backup operations to different locations, such as a local or network folder, FTP servers, or Dropbox.
Although it comes bundled with a handy set of parameters for helping you back up important databases, the tool sports a clean feature lineup. It comes packed with backup and restoring capabilities and several additional tools for carrying out decompression operations.
Creating a new backup and selecting the target destination
SQL Backup Master gives you the possibility to create a new database backup by selecting the SQL server (you can either connect using your Windows authentication parameters or with your SQL server account). Additionally, you may test the SQL connection.
When it comes to selecting the target location, you are allowed to upload the backup data to FTP servers, Dropbox, or to a local or network folder. You can also specify the username and password for connecting to remote network locations.
Configuration settings, compression and notification options
The program comprises several dedicated parameters developed to help you pick a temporary backup folder, enable the automatic cleanup mode for removing the unnecessary differential and/or transaction log backup files, and specify the database timeout.
What’s more, you can compress the database backup files by selecting the desired compression level and encrypt the information by setting up passwords. You can also make the tool send email notifications on a successful or failed backup, schedule the backup operation, as well as decompress ZIP files that store the backup information.
All in all, SQL Backup Master offers a handy suite of features for helping you create database backups. Thanks to its user-friendly interface, it is suitable for rookies and professionals alike.
