We're trying to back up our database using this code:
sqlcmd -S servername -Q "BACKUP DATABASE [DBName] TO DISK = 'C:backup.bak'"
It's been working but there's one little issue: When the backup file already exists, the data gets appended to the file. We need it to replace the file. Is there a way to force a replace?
