If you have access to SQL Management studio, you can create a maintenance plan. Its GUI driven so its very easy to set up a backup job. In addition, the job can include options for deleting older backups after x days so you dont have to worry about keeping an endless stock of backup files that will eventually fill up the drive.


U can add it to windows task scheduler . Write a batch file to export sql server database and add it to windows task scheduler.


you can use the sql jobs all yo uhave to do is to create a job that will back up your dbase. u can choose full back up if you want to back up the whole db. or the other option..also you can set the time of your back up..
