This is a minor release of SQL Backup Pro and includes the following enhancements and bug fixes:

This release also include three previously released patches:

Hi, I'm interested in the specifics of "support for backing up SQL 2014 databases" as I've been using SQL Backup 7.6 against SQL2014 since October 2013.

The issues we fixed were around combinations of keywords, where SQL Server 2014 worked slightly differently to previous releases:

  • BACKUP USER DATABASES WITH DIFFERENTIAL, FULLIFREQUIRED - the full backup was not being generating if it was required
  • BACKUP LOGS WITH FULLIFREQUIRED - was generating a wrong exit code
  • BACKUP WITH CHECKSUM, CONTINUEONERROR - this was returning the wrong error code, if there was an error
  • BACKUP ALL DATABASES - wasn't properly excluded snapshot databases

Hope this helps,
