SQL Azure Database Backup Tool

Included in RazorSQL are SQL Azure backup tools for backing up tables and views in SQL Azure schemas or for backing up single SQL Azure tables.

The SQL Azure database backup tool works by generating all data definition language (DDL) statements for the SQL Azure schema objects selected by the user. It also generates SQL insert statements for all table data in the database. The DDL and SQL insert statements are written out to a backup file.

The SQL Azure database backup tool allows users to select objects to backup such as tables and views, the character encoding of the backup file, the SQL statement separator to use when generating the backup file, and whether to fully qualify object names in the generated SQL and DDL statements.

The database backup tool writes out all data in character format, and as such, may not be acceptable for backing up tables that contain binary data.

Below are screen shots of the main selection pages for the SQL Azure database backup tool and the SQL Azure single table backup tool.
