Offline Backups


#1

Hi there, will my SQL backups work when my computer is offline ? It seems to only be backing up when my computer is connected, is this just how the system works ?

Hi Michael_McLaughlin,

Could you please clarify, what do you mean under “computer is offline”? If you mean that the computer is turned off, then - no, the backups will not be performed. If you mean that a user will be logged out then yes, the scheduled backups will be performed.

Hi there, thanks for replying. Yeah I’m meaning that when my computer is turned off I’m guessing that the backup will be happen during this time.

Hi Michael_McLaughlin,

Thank for the clarification. Sorry, but if your computer is turned off your backups will not be performed.

Sorry for the inconvenience.
