Does this software also clear the log file of the backed up database? (free version)


i just wanted to ask if this software also clearls the database log file? If it does which settings need to be checked for this to happen?


Hi papa_heki,

SQLBackupAndFTP performs backups of your SQL Server databases via Standard T-SQL Commands in the same way as you do it via SSMS.

To truncate Transaction Logs, you have to run regular transaction log backups. Also, you can add the needed scripts to truncate or shrink your transaction log after a backup at the “Run custom scripts” section.

Here are more details: How to automate maintenance of your databases | SQLBackupAndFTP's blog

Also, you can find more detail on how to truncate and shrink transaction log on the web.

If you have any other questions, please let us know.
