So you'll want to connect to the SQL Server using SQL Server Management Studio. You'll need the connection information like the SQL Server name, database username and database password. These are the same pieces of information you used to configure the software in the first place and are probably in your
Web.config file in the
connectionStrings area of the file (you might have to decode the connection string but it's pretty straightforward).
Once you are connected (I'm not using 2014 but I assume the steps are similar):
- Right-click on the database and choose
Tasks -> Back Up...,
- Choose to back up to disk and add a file to back up to (in my version you click
Add... and put in a backup file like
- Click OK
It should create the file you specified in point 2 with a full backup of all the reading program information.
