Problem
When trying to backup IRIS SQL using Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio (or Management Studio Express) you can get the following message : backup failed. Operating system error 5 cannot open backup device SQL
Resolution
This kind of message can be caused because the user may not have the relevant permissions to access the directory. The solution is to choose another directory to which the user has appropriate rights or give permissions to the profile your using i.e. User Group Everyone with full control permissions. IMPORTANT: IRIS suggests that IRIS backups are saved into the SQLBak folder within the IRIS\DATA or TT\DATA folder, and then you backup the data folder using your normal backup system.
