Dear paleface
Well not in this manner ...

We have 2000 SQL Server

the backup is taken on scheduled basis to a specific folder

and then we have a windows automated back the picks the SQL backups into the tape

thats how most people do it

No.  It can back up the files SQL Server uses, but you aren't guaranteed that the transactional state of the database has been saved to those files at any given moment in time. MOA81 is exactly right in how to proceed.

So what you both are telling me is that Nt cannot actually backup a restorable version of SQL db but that it can back up the backup files which SQL would use to back itself up and restore .. from within SQL ... Thank you.
