Marten RuneSQL Expert/Infrastructure ArchitectCommented:
Either you do everything by script. lookat http://ola.hallengren.com/
or
utilize maintenance plans. You should create a full backup, if db is in full recoverymode you also must create transactional backup. Indexoptimization and integritycheck is also good. Make sure you check the box for verify backup files. Takes double time ofcourse, but it's worth it (if you have the time), because you dont want a backup solution, rather a restore solution

And dont forget to try and restore databases every now and then, as a new name, or over existing database (better be a test system).

Regards Marten
