I have to transfer 300gb's of data from a table in one database to a table in another database on the same server. I've done some research into data loading and testing and found the quickest and most efficient way to do this was set the recovery to BULK_LOGGED, turn on trace flag 610 and lock the target table. I have also ordered the data set on the primary key of the target table as well.
The current transfer rate that I'm getting is around 1gb per hour.
My question is would I get a quicker transfer rate if I was to unload the data to a file using BCP or bulk insert and then load it back into the target database and table?
