Cannot backup DB if another one corrupted


Hi there!
My use case is following:
I attach database A right from CD.
Then I remove disk with A from CD-drive and try to backup database B

Expressmaint returns following error in log:

Starting backup on 06.03.2008 12:06:48
Unable to open the physical file "F:\database_2007_Data.MDF". Operating system error 21: "21(....)".

Expressmaint finished unsuccessfully at 06.03.2008 12:06:48 with Return Code(-4)

So, can your tool backup specific database not checking other db's?

Currently any failure when backing up multiple databases will terminate the backup. What would be relatively simple to do would be to create another parameter to indicate you want to continue on error. The return code at the end would still indicate failure but at least the other databases that could be backed up would be. Is that what you are after?
