before re-inventing the wheel, i want to ask you how i can do this best: I have a VB.Net application that uses a database connection to MS SQL Server 2005 (express version). There are users that input data with the application into the database lets say once to 2x an hour to once a minute. I want to do backups like this: Once a day or once a week (in the evening) a full backup, and whenever the program/user is idle for lets say 10 Minutes, i want to do an incremental backup (so that it does not take so long until he can work on after the backup).
There are no big security issues, just copying the backup data files to a network share / a different computer or server would be fine. i guess the average db size may be 300MB, but the daily increments about 1MB.
i want to make a small application about backup so i want to make two buttons , the first one for choosing the source file and show in text box no(1) secondly, i mean a second button for place of new path for that file ( destination for backup file)
Im trying to create an incremental backup utility on a web form using vb.net for code behind.

Is it possible to make a little backup program that can backup from one folder to another, is this much work? With a calender also that can be picked up so you can chose when the backup starts.
Im thinking about f.example 10 lines where you can chose where to backup from (different folderes) And one line where the backup shall be saved. All this with browse folder off course. And with a button backup now and a button backup from the date. A very little program with an easy use.

When user process the backup, it should take a backup in specified location. The backup file should be like "BKP_F_YYYYMMDDHHMMSEC" e.g. "BKP_F_20100406131523.BAK" (where 2010 = Year, 04 = Month, 06 = Date, 13 = HOur, 15 = Minute, 23 = Second).
