Hi Alan

Good advice, we were thinking of once a week as a good time to do it. We would keep a copy of the backup as an 'extra' backup above whatever our clients are doing. How do I check the restore is valid before I copy it cover.

just watch the exact method you use to restore.. i.e. don't overwrite your
database, ensure your restore is valid before renaming files to their
original disposition... and doing this nightly is overkill IMHO - once every
six months is great.. in between time do a scheduled backup and restore to a
dummy file to check things are good and healthy. this can be done nightly if
you wish. This utility is great for the nighly routine
