Lite license allows backup 5 database(s) only

I purchased lite licence.
Job execution error: Lite license allows backup 5 database(is) only. Computer name: “SQLSER”.
I tried 1 & 2 database with successful, but from the third database its failed with this error.
Manually run just fine.
Why ?

Hi Dan

Could you please send us a screenshot of your “Select Databases” window (where you select databases for your backup job). With Lite edition you are allowed scheduled backup up to 5 databases. Please find more details at

Sorry for the inconvenience.

I’m having the same issue. I deleted and recreated the job and it did not resolve the issue. Any solutions? running Version 12.2.3 Lite

Hi Ben_Rubinstein,

In the first stage of a backup job, the job counts how many different databases have been backed up in the last 24 hours (via any job), after that, it combines that list with a list of databases that should be backed up. If the received list contains more than 5 unique databases, then an error message is generated.

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

Thank you for using SQLBackupAndFTP.
