Script is as follows:
master..sqlbackup N'-SQL "BACKUP DATABASE [XXX]
TO DISK = ''E:\Data\Backups\SQL\XXX\FULL\<AUTO>''
WITH NAME = ''<AUTO>'',
DESCRIPTION = ''<AUTO>'', VERIFY, ERASEFILES = 3, COMPRESSION = 1"'
I have today downloaded and installed version 5.1, ran a backup and the server froze again. Standard SQL backup runs fine.
Event log reveals nothing, the last entries are install shield and redgate services starting/stopping during the install and a confirmation it installed sucessfully. Followed by The last system shutdown was unexpected...
SQLBackup has previously run ok on this database (all other databases are backed up with no problem), indeed it was a SQLBackup file I used to restore the database to this server (moved between servers). Once restored backups ran fine, for a few days. All other functionality remains ok, and I am not aware of anything on the server changing since the last backup.
