I was wondering if it is possible to restore encrypted compressed backups created by SQLBackup professional ed on a server running SQLBackup lite edition.

Here is my scenario. I have two production servers and a test server running SQLBackup 5.2 professional. Backups from production servers are compressed and encrypted and every night restored on the development server. I need to add one more development server and was trying to figure out if I need to have professional edition to restore back the encrypted backup or if I can use only the lite edition.

I tried to search the forum and the website but didn't find anything - most probably I was not looking correctly. If someone can point me to the right direction - it'd be much appreciated.

    Hi Paras,

    The Lite Edition of SQL Backup is capable of restoring any encrypted backup for compatibility reasons. The limitation is that it cannot create encrypted backups.

    Thanks for posting!
