Temporary folder by job


We would like to use sqlbackupandftp to backup some large Postgres DB (so we need to specify a temp folder on network share) and some small SQL Server database (that don’t support temp folder on network share).

Could the temp folder setting be set by job instead of being system wide ?


Hi Atmo,

Sorry, but there is no way to specify different temporary folders for your different backup jobs. If you change a temp folder for one of your backup jobs, it will be automatically changed for all other backup jobs.

Hi Alexander,

That’s what I understood reading the help, but I was hopping that “temp folder setting by job” feature could be added in future release ?
That’s the only feature we’re waiting for buying a licence !

Thanks for the clarification and feature request, we’ve forwarded the request to our dev team for consideration.
