Copy Only Backups


#1

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?
Thanks!

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.

But if we check the box that says COPY ONLY, is it guaranteed to make a copy only backup?

Hi A11,

Yes, if that option was enabled the backups will be made with COPY_ONLY option.

We have fixed this issue in the Alpha edition https://sqlbackupandftp.com/download/alpha could you please install it and check if it works?

Sorry for the inconvenience.
