4) In the Back Up Database window, select the type of backup you want to perform, such as Full or Differential.

5) Choose a backup destination by selecting the destination type, such as Disk or Tape, and specifying the backup file location and name.

6) Configure any other backup options, such as compression or encryption, by clicking on the Options page.

Launch SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) and connect to your SQL Server instance.
Expand the Databases node in Object Explorer.
Right-click the database, hover over Tasks, and select Back up....
Under Destination, confirm that the path for your backup is correct.
