Backup skript

Hello!

Can you please advise me how to set up a daily (full) backup of databases on my SQL 2005?
I already have RAID (mirror), but I also want to backup databases to second location - USB disk or. sth. Operating system is MS Windows SBS 2003 Premium.
Step by step instructions are recomended.

Thanks for the help!

Hi,

If you are new to SQL I would suggest using the Maintenance Plan Wizards. This might help you to start.

Hi:
if you use the SBS bult in backup to external usb drive you will get a useable/restorable backup of everything on the SBS.  You question does not say if the SQL server is on the SBS or not, and the maintenance plan is still a good idea, but you can use the maintenance plan to backup the SQL data to an internal disk (not the one one which houses the SQL) and the SBS backup will then backup both the database and the backup of the database.

You can also send the Maintenance plan copy to another drive on the network.

And  in all cases you should rotate the external drives so that one is out of the building at all times.  This requires at least three.
