I want to backup my SQL database programatically.

I have found an article using SMO that will enable me to do this.

However, when I go to add the references to my project, I cannot locate them under the .Net components. I have SQL Server 2008 R2 installed.

Can someone please advise me where I can find the references for SMO?

Thanks in advance.
