How-to: Backing up Databases
Handy Backup / Support / User Manual / Database Backup
The program features a special plug-in to backup databases that support Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) driver. The most popular ODBC compatible databases are Oracle, MySQL and MS SQL.
Note: The latest version, Handy Backup 7.4.0 has individual plug-ins for MS SQL, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle, DB2 and other. They provide much more accurate results than the ODBC plug-in.
To back up data from databases using ODBC connectivity, follow these steps:
File Data Source is stored as a regular file on your local computer. Machine Data Source is stored as the system source in the System Registry.
6a. On the File Data Source tab, click the Size arrow to select file data sources created earlier on your computer or remote computer. If there are no data sources for your database, create a new one. To learn more, refer to File Data Source.
6b. On the Machine Data Source tab, select the desired data source from the list or create a new machine data source. To learn more, refer to Machine Data Source.
Note: The ODBC plug-in can only back up tables. It cannot back up store procedures, views, functions, triggers etc from the database.
The subsequent steps are identical to usual backup task creation. For more details, refer to Backing up data.
