Question. I have a SQL database. It is new and currently how I back it up is I log everyone out, stop the sQL services and the database service, and drag and drop the instance (DATA) to an SSD drive.
What happens if I stop the SQL services when people are logged in? Does this lead to database corruption?
I know Symantec's backup product has an agent that backs up the database for me while people are logged in and I do not have to stop the services. The product is finally stable.
How do you backup your SQL databases, what is the best way? I watched several TECHNET videos on the subject.
