I executed the following instruction
BACKUP DATABASE jpa TO DISK = 'G:\backJpa.bak'

In the SQL server management studio of my home machine which is connected via local network to the sql server of my company.
Note that 'G:\backJpa.bak' references the path that exists in my machine not in the server. i want that the back up file of the remote database to be saved in my local machine using the sql command.
the error i get when i tried the above sql command is : "the specified path isn't found"

"the specified path isn't found"

could you give me an example of network path.
I have to notice you that i want to download the script of the database from an asp .net page. in other hand, i'll give the administrator of the system the ability to choose a location on their local machine where it want the script to be downloaded. then the backup file will be downloaded in this location.

well, it would be something like:

You need to make sure that the folder in discussion has proper security permissions set (read-write access)

You need to use FTP in order to take backup to your local machine as remote and local machines are on different networks.
You can use this tool to exactly do this: BAK to local[^]
