Product Overview
Detailed Information

Finally a tool to overcome the need for a database to be backed up remotely and the file to be collected by ftp or otherwise. Just log in to your SQL Server like you would with your SQL Server Management Studio, select the database you need a backup from, select a target path on your local machine and click "backup locally". The tool then has the SQL Server backup the database and stores the BAK file on your local machine.

The setup now installs an additional fidabaktolocal.exe file that allows for command line execution of database BAK file collection from remote servers. Backup collection can now be scheduled and run unattended.

You find the command line tool in the installation folder. The command line tool currently only supports SQL Server Authentication so you need to provide a valid sql username and password for the target sql server instance.
Command line tool usage:
fidabaktolocal.exe /S server /DB database /UN username /PW password /T localtargetBAKfilename /LN licensename /LC licensecode
Please use "none" as licensename and licensecode for trial.
fidabaktolocal.exe /S /DB mydatabase /UN username /PW password /T C:\LocalDirectory\mybackup.BAK /LN mylicensename /LC mylicensecode

Facts, preconditions and limits:

  • Supports both Windows Authentication and SQL Server Authentication
  • User Login must be in sysadmin group on target SQL Server instance to be able to backup databases
  • SQL Server instance must have enough storage space for a backup to be created and temporarily stored
  • Large databases and BAK files are supported depending on system ressources and storage. Backup transfer over your network can take a while. Be patient.
  • Please properly test this software on your testing environment before you use it on production systems.
