thx for your reply - you should not think I'll never use them - I've said - I won't rely on them.
I completely agree with you, that start with this wizard is a good start to think about what he offers - but at least it should work - e.g. no bugs with simple logged databases which are offered to have log backups.
I'd say: unexperienced people - those who are primarily use the wizard - usually not aware about any bugs- they just think - cool - nice - it seems to work - fine!
Yes I see the improvements (and weaknesses) about the years but for now - I'm not able to believe that the configuration "just works" and at least --> for me it is a overkill to use ssis to perform backups
Keep it simple - sorry for that - todays databases needs backup - if they need more the vendor (of 3rd parties) should provide the necessary scripts - but which vendor use the database as a database (and not a data grave)
Index rebuilding cool but advanced topic (for this type of admins)
shrink databases --> usually a no-no why is it there?
At least - the wizard do not prevent from overwriting backup files - this - a least - should a good wizard for part time admins do.
The wizard should warn about placing the backup files on the same drive than the databases and so on --> this would help to prevent unrecoverable incidents ...
