Understanding Backups


Understanding Backups

One of the most important functions a DBA can perform is the backup. And far too many DBAs rely on the wizard to perform this task. Here I'll take you through everything you need to know about understanding command line backups, writing backup routines, and making the right decisions on how to do what kind of restore and when. I will take you through basic backup syntax and fully explain how things work the way they do and why. If you ever wanted to understand the ins and outs of SQL Server backups then this session will give you what you're after.

Sean McCown is a Certified Master in SQL Server 2008 and a SQL Server MVP with 20 years of experience in databases. He is also founder and co-owner of the website, where he records free SQL Server training videos and co-hosts the popular web show DBAs@Midnight.
