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.

  • Works with databases of all sizes
  • Zero server-side configuration or installation necessary, this is only client software
  • First backup tool on the market to be able to directly store standard SQL Server backup files (.BAK) to your local harddrive
  • Tool works with standard database connection only. No FTP, fileshares or remote desktop connection necessary to retrieve BAK files
  • Take backups from multiple, different servers and instances centrally onto your own local harddisk
  • Ideal for developer teams, database administrators, small businesses with one or multiple instances of SQL Servers
  • Local BAK files can be restored to any other fitting SQL Server instance, like your local SQL Server Express
  • Supports Connection Encryption (for internet connections, i.E. Windows Azure or hosted servers), so login information and backup data is fully encrypted until it arrives on your local system
  • Can use SQL Server Backup Compression so the BAK file will be compressed if the server supports compression.
  • Supports Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8.0, 8.1 and Windows 10, in 32bit and 64bit Windows, runs on Microsoft .NET 2.0
  • Supports SQL Server 2005, 2008, 2008R2, 2012, 2014 and upcoming 2016 databases
  • Sorry, this tool does not support SQL Server 2000 databases
  • Quick customer support from support team, just ask us on support at fida dot org

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 (not windows authentication), so you need to provide a valid sql username and password to connect to 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 /OW true|false
The /OW switch determines if the target BAK file should be overwritten if it already exists. Please handle with care.
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 /OW true

Facts, preconditions and limits:

  • Supports both Windows Authentication and SQL Server Authentication
  • User Login must be in sysadmin on target SQL Server instance to be able to backup databases with this tool
  • 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.
