Public propertyCopyOnly
Sets whether the backup is a copy-only backup. Default is false.
Public propertyDatabaseItem
Sets the database name. When using Attach, you can specify the following metadata: Owner, Files (semicolon delimited), AttachOptions (Default None). When using Detach, you can specify the following metadata: UpdateStatistics, RemoveFulltextIndexFile (both default to false).
Public propertyDataFilePath
Sets the DataFilePath.
Public propertyExists
Gets whether the database exists
Public propertyFileGroupName
Sets the FileGroupName. Defaults to PRIMARY
Public propertyForce
Set to true to force the creation of a database if it already exists.
Public propertyIncremental
Set to true to perform an Incremental backup. Default is false.
Public propertyInformation
Gets the Information TaskItem. Each available property is added as metadata.
Public propertyLogFilePath
Sets the LogFilePath.
Public propertyLogName
Sets the Log Name. Defaults DatabaseItem.ItemSpec + "_log"
Public propertyNewDataFilePath
Sets the NewDataFilePath.
Public propertyNoPooling

Public propertyNotificationInterval
Sets the PercentCompleteNotification interval. Defaults to 10.
Public propertyOutputFilePath
Sets the OutputFilePath.
Public propertyPrimaryDataFileName
Sets the primary data file name.
Public propertyRegexPattern
Sets the regex pattern.
Public propertyReplaceDatabase
A Boolean value that specifies whether a new image of the restored database will be created. If True, a new image of the database is created.
