Hi Everyone,

I'm trying to convert our .sqb backup file to .bak using SQL Backup File Converter. The size of .sqb file was 175+ GB.

When i start to run the tools, he started to generate the .bak files. and after 7+ hours of running still the .bak files generated shows 0 KB size. The Conversion Progress dialog box not showing any progress bar, it show only "Converting 0 of 1 files."

Is there anyway to check if the conversion still ongoing? and why the size of the .bak files showing 0 KB even though the program runs for more than 7+ hours? is the 174+GB of .sqb files is take time to convert to .bak file?

Your thoughts and comments are highly appreciated. Many Thanks!

Regards, Andrian

    If you view the properties of the .bak files, you should see its current size. If it's increasing after every 10 seconds or so, then you know that the conversion is still on-going.

    The GUI does not display the conversion progress. If you need to see the conversion progress, you'll need to use the command line conversion tool (sqbconverter.exe), that displays a notification after every 10% completion.
