SQL Backup Master uses a straight-forward process to create, compress, and store database backups.

 

Creating Database Backups

 

SQL Backup Master uses the Backup Database SQL command to create one or more database backup files on disk.

 

These backup files are created within the temp folder specified on the General tab of the backup job settings.

 

Compression and Encryption

 

Next, SQL Backup Master zips the database backup files in order to reduce the space required to store them.

 

During compression, you have the option of encrypting the zip archives using AES-256.

 

Destination Uploads

 

Finally, the compressed (and optionally encrypted) database backup files are then uploaded to the defined backup destinations (such as Dropbox, Amazon S3, etc.).
