We have several Sql Servers Standards (2005) and one instance of Express. I have one database on the express that I need to backup on a regular schedule. Is there a way that I can do this from SSMS (Standard)? Either through a Maintenance plan or scheduled job? I would prefer not to use Windows Task Schedule.

Thanks,

Why not user SQL internal backup (to file) feature (maintenance plan)?
