Back-end Backup Tool (Build 005, 10 May 2017, 191k, Downloaded: 12.434 times)

Do you have one or more split Access database systems which are permanently in use? Then you probably know you can't just copy their back-end files to create a backup of them as the copies might become corrupt. This database tool allows you to make scheduled backups for an unlimited amount of Access databases. The tool keeps three backup copies of each database it backs up.

Updated to build 005:

Credits: Thanks to Paul Connolly for adding the relationships code.

Works for Access 2003-2013 and Office 365. Separate 64 bit version included.
