Is there a way to automate backing-up a sequel 2005 database? In Sequel 2005, in the server management studio, if I right click the database and go to tasks, I can choose backup& I have it set to backup to a file on the hard drive, and it seems to work fine. I was trying to avoid paying for more BackUp Exec agents. I was hoping this is possible, because when I poked around in the server management studio it looked like there was a place to write scripts. Unfortunately, I know about nothing when it comes to writing scripts. So if this is relatively straight forward maybe I can do this, however if you have to be a scripting god to accomplish this, I guess I have to pry open the wallet.
