    backup umbraco cloud database

    I have connected MS SQL Server Management Studio to my database hosted on Umbraco cloud, but Backup isn't in the context menu when I select my database. How can I create a local backup of my database?

    Hi Will,

    The Umbraco Cloud documentation has 2 different approaches to getting a backup of your cloud database:

    They are listed at the bottom.

    From the point of view of trying to ensure cross SQL version compatibility I think the "Export Data-tier Application" approach is possibly the best.

    Although I would ask yourself why do you need to do a backup of the Cloud database. When you launch your local copy of your website you can use Umbraco to transfer content from your live site to your local development site :-)
