Hi all.

I was asked to provide a complete SQL data dump (with all structure and data information) with all inclusions of one of my SQL Server 2000 databases for a new backup system we will be implementing.

I think I know what they mean by the SQL data dump: provide the data file and log files of the database.

But what do they mean by "with all inclusions"?

Thank you in advance.

Provide the files of a live database is not a good way.   A backup is the way to provide a trustfull recovery, including indexes, constraints, views....

Why don't you ask what 'they' mean to 'them'?
