Use the Backups tab to define database backup options.

Perform Backup when EVE closes Check this box if you want EVE to take a backup when EVE closes.
…if not done for _ hours If you frequently open and close EVE, you may not want a backup to be taken every time EVE closes.  You can specify a number of hours here and EVE will only start the backup if one has not previously been taken within that number of hours.  The default value is 7 hours.
Backup To Specify the folder you want the backup created in.  Note: when you ask EVE to perform a backup, EVE passes on the request to SQL Server.  SQL Server actually performs the backup and so the backup file is created in a folder on the SQL Server computer, NOT the computer you are using.
