Backup questions when using SQL Server.
Hi Everyone,

I have inherited a SQL Server database, that I am putting together a backup strategy for. My experience has been with Oracle and I had a question with regards to the transition.

 1) When backing up in Oracle, to have the capability to perform a full recovery, the system       (log files) has to be set to Archive log mode. (In case the older entries in the archived log files are needed for recovery.)  Does SQL Server operate in a similar manner? In other words, does it back up copies of old log files in case they are needed to perform a full recovery? Is there different terminology used for this concept in SQL Server.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
