Hi,

I have a SQL Compare license, but sometimes I would like people who don't have SQL Compare to send me a snapshot of their database so I can analyze it locally.

Is there any free / lightweight tool that I could ask them to use to generate a database snapshot?

Thanks

In the SQL Compare 10 installation folder you'll find:

RedGate.SQLSnapper.exe
RedGate.SOCCompareInterface.dll
LinqBridge.dll

These three files constitute a free schema snapshot creation tool that you can distribute. It also has a command line.

Type RedGate.SQLSnapper.exe /? from a command prompt for more details.

Let us know if this satisfies your needs.
