I currently have version 6.4.0.56 installed on my computer. When is proper support going to be available for the KEEP_CDC within the user interface? I have already run the patch that enables the use of KEEP_CDC on the server but it would be nice if this was available in the Backup-Wizards too.

many thanks.

    Hi Graham

    Thank you for your post into the forum.

    What you are seeking will appear in SQL Backup V6.5 which is currently in development.

    The planned release date for SQL Backup v6.5 is in Q2 / late May 2011, see the Road Map using this LINK.

    I hope the above answers your question.

    Many Thanks
    Eddie

    Hi Graham

    I have just been notified of a slight change in plans with regards to the KEEP_CDC keyword in SQL Backup V6.5.

    Support of the KEEP_CDC keyword will remain a supported feature in the SQL Backup engine and have the same exact functionality as the patch version you are currently using.

    Unfortunately the SQL Backup GUI will have minimal changes made to it, therefore you will be unable to add the KEEP_CDC keyword when using the Restore wizard. Which means you will need to continue manually editing your restore jobs to include the keyword.

    However the ability to be able to set the KEEP_CDC keyword via the GUI Restore wizard will remain a feature request that will hopefully be included in a future version of the product.

    Many Thanks
