Can ExpressMaint be used on C# WinForms App with SQL 2008 R2 Express

Dec 31, 2015 at 12:09 AM
I write C# WinForms Apps using Visual Studio 2010, and a SQL 2008 R2 Express .mdf file.

Can the ExpressMaint tool be used to backup and export the .mdf file out of one version of the C# App and re-import the file into a newer version of the same App for the end-user?

I'm looking to backup the DB file both on demand and on a periodic schedule if possible.
