  1. Thanks for the reply!  Something definitely isn't right then.  I've got an open ticket with our DBAs to confirm the .bak being created by the application process is correct which I have no doubts it is.  The application gives no failure alert doing the backup.  The size in SSMS shows at 47mb with 33mb free so definitely not 200mb going by my backup.


    I'm looking at the documentation here - 



    and I'm not seeing anything wrong with our setup.  We'll test from the .bak file the application makes and see.




  2. Question when setting the backup feature under "Backups and Upgrades"


    When it takes a backup of the database I'm assuming it's doing a DIFF not a FULL.

    Reason being if I run a commandline like so - 


    sqlcmd -S hostname -U passwordstate_user -P password-Q "BACKUP DATABASE passwordstate TO DISK='d:\temp\passwordstatedb.bak'


    I get a file that is approximately 200mb in size.


    When I run the backup procedure within the application the backup is 2mb in size.
