By upgrading your outdated or Express version of Microsoft SQL Server, you will be able to automate the backup process of your Microsoft Dynamics GP data and be notified by email, should that backup fail, keeping you ahead of the game. Another amazing backup feature of Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Standard Edition is ‘point in time recovery’. With this feature enabled you can restore your data back to any given point in time throughout your workday should something go wrong.

Microsoft SQL Express users can unlock a number of features after they upgrade, including increased performance, the ability to work with up to 4 CPU’s and up to 64Gb of ram, as well as SQL Server Management Studio2 with the SQL Agent for scheduling weekly maintenance jobs to keep your databases running efficiently. A new feature of Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 is Backup Compression. With Backup Compression enabled you can reduce data storage requirements and spend less time performing backup & restores.
