What does the backupdatabase.bat do?

The backupdatabase.bat does a full backup of the database using a pg_dump.  It is in verbose mode so you can see everything that it is doing.

We are doing a full backup, here is the path the backup is put:

full backup path is 'C:\Program Files\Skybot\Skybot Scheduler\skybot_20150909131813.backup'

The 20150909131813 is a date and time stamp.

The backup is put in the product directory.  The user can make a copy of the bat file and change the path and put the backup in any directory that they want and then maybe move it off the server.

If you would like to setup the backup in the Scheduler you will need an Agent on the server also.
