We're pleased to announce that SQL Backup 7 has been released. This is a major release and includes new features to make it easy to verify your backups.

http://www.red-gate.com/products/dba/sql-backup/

New features:

• Create scheduled restore jobs to restore the latest backup each time the job runs – the backups do not have to exist at the time the job is created.

• Create scheduled restore jobs to restore specific backup files which already exist.

• Run a database integrity check as part of a scheduled restore job.

• Drop a database following a scheduled restore and database integrity check.

• Create a reminder to verify backups from the Schedule Backup Jobs wizard and launch the Schedule Restore Jobs wizard populated with details from the backup job.

• Include CHECKSUM in a backup from the Back Up or Schedule Backup Jobs wizard.

• Create copy-only backups from the Back Up or Schedule Backup Jobs wizard.

• View results of CHECKSUM and DBCC CHECKDB from the Activity History.

    Before I upgrade to version 7 from the 6.X verison that I just installed last night (would have been nice to have gotten a warning last night that version 7 would be out the next day) I'd like to know if the new version supports creating a scheduled backup job that is a COPY_ONLY backup? I see COPY_ONLY listed as a new feature but its not celar if I can setup a scheduled jopb (recuring or one time) that will createa a COPY_ONLY backup everytime it runs.

    Thanks
  • Hi EdCarden,

    Yes, it is possible to set up a scheduled backup job to take a copy-only backup each time the job runs. Just select the option on step 2 of the Schedule Backup Jobs wizard when you create the job. The option is also available in the Back Up wizard for one-off backups.

    Thanks,

    Hi Larabrian

    Yes, SQL Backup v7 does support copy_only backup. Step 2 of both the backup wizard and scheduled backup wizard you can select a copy-only backup. Or you can edit your existing syntax and add the copy_only keyword.

    If you create a scheduled backup job and select the copy_only option, it will perform a copy_only backup every time the job is run.

    The latest version of SQL Backup is now at V7.6.

    Many Thanks
