hi all

i am trying to set up a transaction log back up against one db (its in full recovery mode), i create the backup as the picture illustrates and select the db, but each time i save and close out it loses the database selection !

i cant see what i could be missing?

also if anyone has any important steps i should be following when backing up the log files - please feel free to advise! eg i have read that there is an option to ignore transactions once they are backed up - but cant see it?

cheers

Did you have the DB Setup to FULL Recovery mode?

Before taking a transaction log backup, you should

1) Change the recovery model to FULL

--ALTER DATABASE DATABASE_NAME SET RECOVERY FULL
--or using GUI . Database Properties - Options - Change it to FULL

2) Take a Full Backup

You have to do this in order to be able to setup transaction log backups.

Thanks,
