            string connString = string.Format("Data Source=MY_SERVER;Initial Catalog=master;Integrated Security=True");
            SqlConnectionStringBuilder builder = new SqlConnectionStringBuilder(connString);
            builder.AsynchronousProcessing = true;
            using (SqlConnection sqlConnection1 = new SqlConnection(builder.ConnectionString))
            {
                using (SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand("BACKUP DATABASE [TEST_DB] TO  DISK = N'\\\\servername\\foldername\\backup.bak' WITH NOFORMAT, INIT,  NAME = N'Full_Backup', SKIP, NOREWIND, NOUNLOAD,  STATS = 100", sqlConnection1))
                {
                    sqlConnection1.Open();


                    IAsyncResult result = cmd.BeginExecuteNonQuery();



                    result.AsyncWaitHandle.WaitOne();



                    int  rs = cmd.EndExecuteNonQuery(result);
      }
            }

Open in new window


The "EndExecuteNonQuery(result)"  "rs"  is  -1 not 1

why? how can i know it's success?

EndExecuteNonQuery returns number of rows affected and here the case is it is taking a backup.

As long as you didn't had any error thrown, mean backup is success.  Also you can check whether the .bak file is created and its size is more than zero at the end if you want.
