DBMS backup restrictions
Handy Backup / Backup / Database Backup / Restrictions
The Database plug-in allows you to back up databases of different types through the Open Data-Base Connectivity (ODBC) protocol. If you have an ODBC-compatible database and an ODBC driver for it, then you can create its backup with our software.
The use of ODBC for backup has several common pitfalls. The protocol provides a standardized interface for all databases, but doesn’t “know” many details about their internal functionality. This results in a number of limitations, as follows:
Handy Backup features a number of database-specific plug-ins that give much more accurate results than the general ODBC-based approach.
If you are using one of these databases, then we highly recommend you to use the respective plug-in, rather than the Database plug-in which uses ODBC. You can learn about database-specific plug-ins below:

When restoring backed up tables to a new database, it is recommended to use a database of the same type and version, and reconstruct the original table structure prior to restoration. Otherwise, the following problems may occur:
