should we create the equal number of filegroups for eqaul number of table partitions. like if one table have the partiton on the quarter basis for 10 years, then shall we create the 10*4 = 40 number of New file group for each different partiton. and if there are 10 large table in 1 Database so number the of file group will be 40*10 = 400.

if we create the partitons for future 5 years, then on the 4Quarter basis there will 20 filegroup will be blank or empty(means not having the data at present) will we need to maintain.

if the no of filegroup will be increased, is there any impact on the maintainance of database. is there any problem in backup and restore the database, log size increase etc.

Please suggest what should be strategy for that.
