I have downloaded your SQL Compare trail version. If use it in production to compare a database on two different servers, is there any risk involve? Does the tool have any destructive action or results?



  • Options
    Just running a comparison between two different databases is completely non-destructive. You can, if you decide to, choose to synchronize the two databases by running through the synchronization wizard. It's only at the final step of that, where it warns you very clearly, that your database will be modified.

    Hope that helps.
