I am very new to SQL and am trying to backup a SQL database. I had the following software recommended to me
It look pretty cut and dry, but I am having trouble connecting to my SQL server. I installed the software on the machine running SQL server and when I try to connect to my SQL server, it doesn't seem to detect the particular instance of SQL server with the information I need to backup. It is detecting a few items (.\MSSQLSERVER, .\MICROSOFTSMLBIZ, .\MSONLINE).
I'm just not sure what to do from here. I've tried inputting various pieces of data that I get from looking at my database SQL Server Management Studio Express, but haven't been successful. Any help would be appreciated.
