Backup to remote server

Feb 27, 2010 at 4:39 AM

Been using ExpressMaint on a couple of SQL servers and it works great!  Was wondering if there is a way to use this program to backup data to a remote server?  Any reply is greatly appreciated.

From a performance/integrity perspective you are better backing up locally and then copying the file to the remote server - few reasons

  1. Your backup job won't take as long to run as it's working locally - less contention on your SQL box.
  2. Lack of connectivity doesn't stop the backup running only the remote copy.

I am using remote desktop. I set backup everyday. But backup are failed.

Here is my error:

Failed to connect to server localhost\sqlexpress.
