Following James' observations, I've requested that the question be changed to apply only to SQL Server 2005, and the explanation reworded to add that you can in fact use SSMS 2008 to change the default backup directory.

Again, apologies to anyone that knew about the Facets method and got the question wrong because of that.

(No apologies however to anyone that didn't know about that way of doing it and thought you could set it in the same place as the default locations for data and log files )

GOOD MORNING ..MORNING I LEARNED NEW TOPIC THANKS..


The directories for the default data files, log files and backups are stored in the system registry. As mentioned already you have the ability to change the default data and log directories using SQL Server Management Studio, by right clicking on the server name and selecting properties and navigating to the Database Settings page as shown below.

Super SQL Star,

are you Greg Robidoux and is this your pseudonym here on SSC?
If you aren't, please give credit to Greg and quote that you copied from his excellent post (http://www.mssqltips.com/tip.asp?tip=1583), as Tejaswili Patil already pointed out.

Hi,

In SQL Server 2008, we can change it from SSMS by right clicking Instance name.

But in SQL Server 2005, it was possible by modifying registery.

The question is not wrong but it is applicable to 2005 and not to 2008.

Duncan has already said this in earlier posts. Kindly read earlier posts.

Regards,
Tejaswini

I answered SQL Server Management Studiop because in SQL Server 2008, we can change the default backup directory in it.

Select facets on the instance of SQL Server and change the value of Backup Directory.

In the question, it was not specified if it was SQL Serv 2005 or 2008.

I answered based on SSMS 2008. I haven't used the 2005 client tools in quite some time and the question did not specify which version of SQL tools was being used
