Project Description
Welcome to the Expressmaint project. This project maintains two utilities for automating the backup and maintenance of databases for SQL Server 2005/2008/2008R2 Express Edition. They are based on the sqlmaint application that came with SQL Server 2000 but updated for SQL Server 2005/2008/2008R2. There is a standalone VB.NET console application and a SQL stored procedure, that demonstrate how to automate database backup and maintenance tasks via SMO (SQL Management Objects) or TSQL.

For detailed information and examples of how to use these utilities please see the following articles
