Migrating or assigning a content database in Sharepoint- how to?

Experts- here's the skinny:

I set up a sharepoint portal, and starting making some sites. Well, now I have quite a few sites in use....and they are getting more "important" daily.

 How do I break them up and restore them so that they each have their own content database?

 In other words, I want each site to be independent of any other site, in case something gets goofed up on a single site, I can just restore that single site's database, rather than the entire site's database. Please advise- TIA

There's a tool here: http://www.gotdotnet.com/workspaces/workspace.aspx?id=27596728-4727-4dcd-8733-49e4017e90bd that might be what you're looking for. i've used it in the past to split up large content databases. it locks, backs up, deletes and restores a site thereby splitting the db's

read through it before you try it though.

sorry, i lost track of your question. the workspace in question on golddotnet is the wsssplit workspace. the link shoudl work fine. if not, google wsssplit and it should come up as one of the first few links.
