Topic: Backup

I am trying to backup my database for the first time, but am not having much success! I've gone into tools/database tools/backup database and pressed ok but then get the message 'The backup operation cannot be completed because the device location can't be opened'. Backup location (tools/database tools/view or change backup location) is set at 'Recorder 6'.


Re: Backup

First thing to try is to change the backup location to the standard location.  Normally this would be somewhere similar to this  C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL11.SQLEXPRESS\MSSQL\Backup.

If this doesn't work you may need to reset the location. This is explained in FAQ at https://forums.nbn.org.uk/viewtopic.php?id=6123
