Database Server Info
(This setting is not needed when running backup at database server PC, as the folder maintained at Temporary Folder will be utilised.)
When you perform 'Backup' at workstation/client PC, the following process will take place:
1. You (workstation) send a backup query to database server,
2. The server responded by producing a temporary backup file to Server Backup Directory,
3. You (workstation) will remove the temporary backup file thru Client Access Server Network Folder Path (the same folder as step 2), and paste it to the designated folder(s) defined at Backup To.
Server Backup Directory: key in the path of temporary backup folder on server (which is shared out with read and write access rights). E.g. D:\Shared\Backup
Client Access Server Network Folder Path: key in the server path of Server Backup Directory, in the format of: \\<server name>\<backup folder name>... E.g. \\ACServer\Shared\Backup
Validate Path: to check if the path you have keyed in is valid.
Use WinRAR to compress (Recommend): to enable database compression using WinRAR.
WinRAR Directory: the path where WinRAR program is installed.
Time Out: set the waiting time for SQL Server to respond. If SQL Server did not respond within this time (may be caused by high loads of queries), the Backup query will be cancelled (time out).
Buffer Size: set the buffer size for backup.
Temporary Folder: define a folder for Server to store the generated temporary backup file; this folder is used when running backup at database server PC.
Backup To: click on this button to execute backup.
