WhatsApp currently does not offer a desktop client and WhatsApp cannot be integrated with services like IFTTT either (yet). This article describes how WhatsApp photos on your Android device can be downloaded to your PC and uploaded to a variety of cloud storage services.
I like to automate things! There’s this great feeling you get when you set things up to run without manual intervention. It just makes you feel “powerful”. I have scripts and code pieces to backup stuff like Microsoft SQL Server Databases (see my post on Backing up SQL Server to Dropbox), MySQL Databases, entire cloud machines, entire websites, and/or selected folder(s) within a directory.
SQL Server 2008 allows for the creation of local backups. However, these backups must really be “local” in the sense that they can only be created on the machine where the SQL Server instance is installed. The whole idea behind database backups is about keeping a copy of data in case of Server failure or some other problem. So storing the backed up data on the same machine is definitely not a good idea.
