I have updated the GUI to SQL Backup 126.96.36.199 and the server components too. I right-click on the server in the GUI and choose Options. The "Server Options" dialog box comes up. I made changes in there (both File Management and Email settings) and clicked on OK. The settings changes do not remain after clicking on Options again - they revert back to blanks. The sql server 2005 is installed in Windows Server 2003 x64 SP2. The user name set up to run the SQL Backup Agent on the server is a domain service account with full-control permissions for files,folders and sub-folders inside C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Red Gate\SQL Backup. I read the help instructions on a older post by Eddie Davis at http://www.red-gate.com/messageboard/vi ... hp?t=15060
but it did not resolve my issue.
