1.5TB MSSQL2k8r2 with 2years of sales data.  

We want to do a one time back up and restore of the entire database to a (read only) BI database. Then maintain only 6 months of data in our production environment, with data older than 6 months being archived in a (read only) BI database.

How would you recommend to setup the daily differential updates for new entries from Production db to BI db, only backing up the Inserts and updates and not the delete statements. Then delete the copied data from production db.
