SQL Server Compressed Backup


Local Plugin Reference

The Local plugin is used for reading or writing files on a local filesystem.


pathYesThe path to the file to read or write. If a relative path is given, the path will be based on the current working directory.
You can specify multiple "path" parameters to stripe the backup to multiple files. Since each file gets a dedicated thread and pipeline, it will allow you to use compress a backup with multiple threads.


The example below backs up to the file C:\model.bak.

msbp.exe backup "db(database=model)" "local(path=c:\model.bak)"
