"Copy only" backup

Postby puresystems » Fri Dec 04, 2015 12:55 am

Hi, just trying out your software and wanted to use it in conjunction with an existing sql backup script which performs a daily backup and 15min transaction backups. We want to use your app so provide another level of backup but don't want it to interfere with the current backups as these are setup for point in time restores. If we performed a backup in SQL without ticking the "Copy only" backup option (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-GB/library/ms191495.aspx), then it would interfere with the backups already running.

Can we use your app so that it performs a "Copy only" backup?

Many thanks.

Hi Puresystems,

Sorry, CloudBacko does not have the option to connect and backup with the "Copy Only" option. An alternative method is to have a script to spool the files with this option and have CBP run a file backup on the spooled DB from the script.

Hi, thanks for the update. It would be a useful feature to have in the future as we have many applications which would use it.
