Hi,

We have an application with SQL Server 2005 as his database. When I open the database in sql server management studio, under management > it does not give the option like "backup", "copy database", nor there is folder called maintenance plans.

Can you please advise how I can bring back the option?

Do you see Backup under Tasks in the right click menu of the database?

Open a new query window and execute this: Select @@version;

If that shows the Express Edition, then you don't have access to SQL Server Agent. If you have Standard or Enterprise, then validate that your account has the necessary rights to be able to access agent jobs.

Hi jeffw8713,

Thanks. It shows express version however I installed full version only. It seems the application uses express database and when I installed sql server, I pointed installation path to "C:/program files/applicationname" to make the application work.

If it shows express, then you didn't install full version. I don't know what this means:

Well, when we install SQL Server tools, by default it selects path C:/program files/microsoft sql server, but I changed path to another folder.
