Recently i got requirement as, to create backup or restore data from/to SQL database based on user criteria using ASP.Net MVC (.Net 4.5)application. Details are as below,

SQL Tables:

1. Employee

EmpID | Name | JoiningDate | DeptID

1001 | A | 11-JAN-2013 | 20
1002 | B | 12-JAN-2013 | 21
1003 | B | 17-JAN-2013 | 22

2. Department

DeptID | Name
20 | Dept1
21 | Dept2
22 | Dept3

i) I have to take data backup based on user criteria like "All employee details joined between certain date range" into external storage device?

ii) Need to restore the same data into sql.

It would be great, if anyone suggests me how to proceed for the solution?

@Shanu: Thanks.
I already gone through these articles and two are about taking complete database backup. But in my case, i have to take only partial data from database depends on user selected criteria as i mentioned in issue.

Okey, you mean the specific files?

Example: if the database has total of 1000 employee details, I need data backup of say only 300 employee details(data filtered based on criteria selection like date range).
