Copy Only Backups


Hello, I have another application doing SQL backups but want to use SQLBackupAndFTP as an additional backup. Because of this, I would like to create copy only backups. I checked the box that says Copy Only but the job log mentions nothing about the backups being Copy Only. How can I ensure backups are copy only and won’t interfere with the other software backup chain?


Hi A11,

Yes, currently, there is no way to check if a backup was made with the COPY_ONLY option or without, but we’ll add a record into a backup log.

Thank you for the feature request, we’ve forwarded it to our dev team.

Please let us know if you have any further questions.
