How Can I Create a Schema-Only Salesforce Backup?
To create a schema-only CopyStorm backup, you can:
- Start with an empty database.
- Set CopyStorm’s “Modified Since” parameter on the Advanced Tab to a date in the future.
- e.g. “1/1/2112”
- Press “Start Copy”.
This will cause CopyStorm to start a new backup, create tables in the database, and populate them with all table data created after the specified date — none if the date is in the future!
After the CopyStorm backup has completed, the backup database will contain an empty Salesforce schema that is compatible with CopyStorm/Restore.
If new tables or fields are added to the Salesforce instance, running CopyStorm again with the same configuration will update the database with the new or modified tables and fields.
