Part III: SQL Server Administration > Database Backup and Restore

Chapter 14. Database Backup and Restore

In This Chapter

You need to perform database backups to protect your investment in data. Making backups may seem mundane, but consider Murphy’s Law (“If anything can go wrong, it will”) when you are considering your backup plan. For example, if you forget to add a new database to your backup plan, that database will crash. If you neglect to run a test restore of your backups, those backups will not restore properly. This type of thinking may seem a bit defeatist, but it can help you create a robust backup solution that allows you to sleep comfortably knowing you have a good plan.
