I have Microsoft SQL Server 2014 on an Azure VM (Windows Server 2012 R2) with one database. Is it possible to configure an automatic backup to my Google Drive folder? Maybe a special tool or somethings else?
- Download the Google Drive desktop application.
- When backing up SQL Server, set the destination to the "My Drive" folder created by Google Drive (something like
C:\Users\<user>\Google Driveby default)
- Once a backup is placed in that folder, it will automatically start to sync to Google Drive.
Also worth nothing, as per Shawn Melton's comment:
You can adjust the folder location for the drive application, so it does not have to reside in a user folder. Any Administrator can actually remove a user profile and you just lost all your backups (locally at least).
