Unfortunately I cannot use Microsoft's database tool to access my MS SQL server, so I need to use another tool like SQuirreL SQL.

How can I make a backup (i.e. dump) of the database?

I've never used this one, but have worked with something similar (commercial and no longer available anyway):

DBSave is a .Net Framework based solution to backup and restore MS SQL Server in running mode.

  • MS SQL Server backups with one click or via MS Windows based Schedule jobs.
  • DBSave is very easy to set up.
  • Backups Local, to Network or via FTP.
  • Remote Backup via VDI.
  • Supports up to 4 SQL servers instances on different servers.
  • Compression of the backups regardless of the SQL Server version.
  • Encryption of the backups via AES regardless of the SQL Server version.
  • DBSave supports german and english language.
