As a part of my security strategy I have created this script to automate the database snapshot creation.
The main idea is to have two snapshot databases always availables to restore some part of databases.
In the script you can see how is named the snapshot, usinf the current date and a secuencial number to identify each one.
After that you will see I remove the oldest file and create a new one.
