Not too difficult for someone who hasn't read his blog as well. I just pay close attention to others more versed in log files that also post here on SSC.

I think I almost got it right -

This was a great question that made me do a little reading and learn something about a little understood part of SQL Server.

I do believe that the other 16% who got it right, deserve more than just 2 points.

Thanks,

Paul, thanks to a firmly worded and clearly written article of yours I'd read a while ago http://www.sqlskills.com/BLOGS/PAUL/post/Misconceptions-around-the-log-and-log-backups-how-to-convince-yourself.aspx, I got this one right.

I agree with the comment someone posted on that web page above: it would be helpful if BOL adopted more explicit language about this issue.

Yours,
Rich M.
