Back-end Backup Tool (Build 004, 03 Feb 2010, 77k, Downloaded: 10,217 times)

Do you have one or more split Access database systems which are permanently in use? Then you probably know you can't just copy their back-end files to create a backup of them as the copies might become corrupt. This database tool allows you to make scheduled backups for an unlimited amount of Access databases. The tool keeps three backup copies of each database it backs up.

Updated to build 004:

Credits: Thanks to Paul Connolly for adding the relationships code.

Works for Access 2000, XP, 2003, 2007 and 2010.

Hello Sir/Madam:
I'm very glad to find this software as backup access automaticly for your website,It's very useful for me.
But I find the question for this software that it only export the Table part when it execute backup action.
I'm want have the software that it can export the whole database such as table,queries,forms,reports, macro and moudule when it's export as backup file. Is it possible?
Would you like to give me this kind of founction softeware and I will be appreciate your strong support!
Best Reagard!

Hi Sonam,

The tool is intended for back-end/front-end MSAccess solutions, where the front-end is a more or less static database that contains all your logic (forms, reports, queries, VBA code) and your back-end contains just the tables (and hence all data) and their relationships.

The tool assumes you already have a backup copy of your front-end database.

Hello I downloaded this tool and it works great with Access 2007 but not with Access 2007 Runtime.
Can you imagine a reason?
Thanks, Georg

Hi Georg,

TBH, we've never tried the tool in Access runtime :-)
