Hi, I'm Richard Fryar
I am the founder of SQL CoPilot

I have been developing and administering SQL Server since 1993, when I was first introduced to SQL Server 6.5. The product has come a long way since then, and I have enjoyed keeping pace with new releases.

I developed SQL CoPilot v1 over a 9 month period in 2012 as a tool to assist my day-to-day work as a DBA, and it quickly grew into a phenomenally useful tool. I was persuaded that SQL CoPilot should be made available for other DBAs to use, and so this website was born to make version 1 available.

Now, a few years and several thousand downloads later, SQL CoPilot version 2 has replaced the original tool. This is a vast improvement over what was already pretty amazing, and is being continually improved further.

Please download the free trial if you haven't already and you'll see what I mean.
