Take snapshot of customer database


Sometimes I suspect that my customers have errors in the databaselayout (maybe because of errors in previous upgrade scripts, or some other external factor) and to verify this I always need them to send me a backup. This works of course, but not all customers agree to that. The database may contain sensitive data.

Then I realized that it would be great if I could make my application take a snapshot, using some SQL Compare-component, and then have the customer email me the snapshot (which does not conatin sensitive data).

Is this possible? Would you consider building such a tool/component?
