Hi all,

We keep an offsite copy of a live DB. We currently refresh thus;

1) Back up the ENTIRE live DB,
2) Copy .bak file(group) to Offsite server;
3) Restore (With replace)

However, only 2% approx of the data has changed, so we are throwing a lot of un-needed data across narrow bandwidth. Also space on that offsite server is very restricted.

So I'd like to change step 1 to;

1) Backup ONLY those tables updated on Server1.DB1 since Server1.DB2 was created;

What is the best workflow to do this in SS2K, bearing in mind FK's, and the live DB is already a log-shipping primary being backed up every 15 minutes?

Thanks,

JB
