Everyone store owner knows how is it important to have a reserved copy of products or customers collected during website running. Just imagine you have a 10 000 customers in your store and some day your database environment crashes...
nopCommerce already has a feature to backup a database. But every time you have to do it manually.
With Scheduled Backup plugin you are able to schedule backups and forget about doing it manually every day.
There is an additional feature to delete old backup files with specified lifetime (will be helpful to save a drive space).
Note: scheduled backup as well as default nopCommerce backup will work correctly only in case of MSSQL Server is located on the same server where nopCommerce application is hosted.
For documentation and details please refer to this link. You may also find a plugin for your older nopCommerce version there!
