I'm doing a db-to-db copy of a MS SQL SErver 2008R2 database. Which is the better approach to use:

1. Create database and tables without foreign keys.
2. Transfer the data
3. Create foreign keys

OR

1. Create database and tables without foreign keys.
2. Create foreign keys
3. Transfer the data using the foreign key hierarchy.

Thanks.

Hi,

Generally create all the indexes and keys after the big inserts.
