Darwin,

Very nice article, good thinking there. This idea should be suggested to Microsoft as part of the Maintenance plan for application databases backup plan (with size as a criteria, my assumption this option is not there presently in the maintenance plan).

I appreciate the article and detailed analysis, thanks for the same.

Best Regards

TVN

Has anyone ever gone back and completed this to automate the process? I would be very interested in it.

Thanks,

Chad

Thanks so much Darwin for explaining how to do this. Using your methodology I scripted this in two flavors. Even on very large databases (>1TB) it will complete in just a handful of seconds. Enjoy. :-D
