12.2.9 (See all)
Run scheduled and custom backups for SQL Server or SQL Server Express databases. Select the type of update you want, be it full, differential or transaction log set, encrypt the data and select an area for storage. Work with FTP, cloud, email data, remove older backup versions.

SQLBackupAndFTP is a simple program that backs up your SQL Server databases, it also zips and encrypts backups and file folders. You can set it to save the zips and the encrypts on a remote FTP Server, on the LAN, an external hard drive or on a tape. SQLBackupAndFTP removes old backups which unnecessarily fill your hard drive. The program also sends you an e-mail to confirm if the backup was done successfully or it didn't go well. SQL scripts are executed before and after the backup is done. The program has a user-friendly interface and it does not request solid IT knowledge.

The program is perfect for any SQL Server database which has to send daily backups to a remote FTP server. You can create an unlimited number of databases to back up per day, only by using the "Run Now" button. Unfortunately, the free version has a limit of 2 databases and the lite version is limited to 5 scheduled backups.

The 6.4 version introduces improved SQLBackupAndFTP service state control. You do not even need to start the program: you just schedule it when to run using the Windows Scheduler.
