20GB, as Grant mentioned, isn't large. However if you are considering this to be a small system that is growing, I would split the table to a separate filegroup and then run filegroup backups.

Make sure that you practice restoring so that you understand how to restore a filegroup separately from another.

Excellent point. Yes, practice doing the restores if you're deviating from a simple standard full backup.

Of course, you should practice restoring the full backup too.

Thanks All for the helpful comments and suggestions.

Yes we are small company but 20GB is our database for a single self hosted client.
Since this database size will keep on increasing, that is what i am worried about.

I will do some research on filegroup backup and work on it..

Thanks once again...
SQLServerCentral.com is a great help for me..
