Cold Backup of Visual FoxPro 7
Posted on 2009-03-31
I am quite unfamiliar with FoxPro and I am just looking to create a simple nightly cold backup. I can do this with SQL Server and Oracle but shutting down the database, then copying the datafiles. I am not sure how to do this in FoxPro.
Every backup article I find online is related to a hot backup. While a hot backup would be ideal, it seems there are no clean cut solutions without a 3rd party utility. A cold backup would be fine as it's not a database that needs to be online constantly.
