Hi all, I was after some free advice.

I'm fairly new to SQL and have been tasked to solve a little problem.

I need to backup a database from our LIVE server and restore to our DEV server on a weekly basis. Both servers are SQL2005.

We have Backup Exec 2010 which performs a daily full SQL database backup and frequent log backups, it must take place before this on a Saturday.

Can anyone give me some suggestions on the best way to do this?

Kind Regards,

Andy

I have scripted the backup and restore from one server to another. We use native SQL for the backup and for the restore. I restore from a file on the disk on one server to a different server and this is done on a nightly basis - immediately following the backup of said database.

Any chance you can send me a copy of the SQL code that you run so I can have a crack at tweaking it to fit our needs?
