Hi

I wrote the below code for taking the backup

If str = "backup" Then
               SaveFileDialog1.FileName = cmbdatabase.Text
               SaveFileDialog1.ShowDialog()
               Timer1.Enabled = True
               ProgressBar1.Visible = True
               Dim s As String
               s = SaveFileDialog1.FileName
               query("backup database " & cmbdatabase.Text & " to disk='" & s & "'")


But when i m selecting the location using file dialog, it's not creating any backup file

Please tell me the problem.

Thank you

The backup path should be a valid path on the server and not on the client (you are giving a client side path), the backup command is executed on the server.

You can't backup to your local system directly, you must back up to the server drives then copy to your local system.
