I already done back up and check the compress checkbox in sql server. The file is saved, and I have two questions.

1. After it is compressed, what file extension will be? All i see is file.
2. How can I restore the database from the db I just compressed?

The compressed db does not look like it is a zip or something. I just wonder how to restore back...thanks

1) pretty sure it maintains the .bak extension, just compressed

2) you restore like you would any other backup

1. However you named it in your script. You could call it CMP if you wanted.
2. No different.

Just a word of caution:  A backup is of no use to you, if you cannot restore from it.  So please test your backups (compressed or not) frequently and you will not be surprised.
