You CAN change the default backup directory using SSMS very easily:-

- From Object Explorer, right-click on the server and choose Facets.
- In the Facet dropdown, choose Server Settings.
- Change the BackupDirectory to your chosen folder.

No server restart is necessary. You can verify the change by checking the registry key.


Thanks James, I did not know you could change it from SSMS.

SKYBVI, Lady Di, MG-148046 and anyone else who picked SSMS because you can do this in 2008:

In case you haven't read my previous posts, I apologise for the question - it should have specified SSMS 2005, and I have emailed the webmaster to ask for it to be changed. Not much more I can do for now I'm afraid

First let me say I only got the question right because I know someone that works at M$.
Second let me say that I have no idea if this question is still on the M$ database exams becuase it is so controverted.

The exam question used to be how do you set the default backup directory.
The correct answer was only during installation.
It was said the other "correct answers" were wrong becuase manual registry updates to change a policy settings was not supported.

Unfortunately it actualy can be done by updating the registry and with the FACETS management object for updating policy objects. Does not even have to be done in SSMS if you know how to call it from code.

Shame that M$ support does not properly document the Policy Update or FACETS utility.

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 ;-))

Duncan, you can if you do it during the server install. Of course your question did say default, but then again a default installation on a cluster never puts any of these on the "C:" or "<system drive>:". You could add that to your explination. :-D

Thanks for the question. (It was easy since it has been modified to limit it to SQL Server 2005.)
