During some support requests, it may be necessary to provide a backup to your SQL database.

In order to perform this in the easiest manner possible, it is necessary to download Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio. It can be downloaded here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/ssms/download-sql-server-management-studio-ssms

After downloading and installing, you can follow the steps below:

  1. Open Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio (May need to be installed separately)
  2. Connect to the “ServerName\Instance” of the server that has the DB you want backed up.
  3. Expand the Databases tab to get to the DB you want to back up.
  4. Right click the desired DB –> Tasks –> Back Up…
  5. Set “Backup Type” to “Full”
  6. Go through the rest of the General and Options tab information to set the options to what you want.
  7. Click OK to start the Backup process.
