Hi Faraz_Ali_Shah,

To perform backups in a .bak file you have to install SQLBackupAndFTP on the same computer where SQL Server is installed and use a local connection otherwise only remote backups (.sql file) are available.

Please find more details at Remote SQL Server backups explained | SQLBackupAndFTP's blog

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

Thank you!
