I am looking for a backup scheduler program to use to back up to an external drive connected to my windows 2003 server including MSSQL? It should be very user friends and inexpensive would of course be nice. Any suggestions of programs you used or heard of?

    Strictly speaking, my script does what you ask - it's free, it backs up to removable media, and it can include SQL if you stop and start the SQL service or enable a backup from within SQL itself to a file.
