How to backup a database table as a non-DBA?

Last Modified: 2016-06-20

I am using a table in a no-production Sql Server database. And I am not the database Admin.
I would like to backup a table (dump the numbers into a file) and then, when/if the table gets accidentally deleted, I can restore it real quick.

Could someone point to any direction on how to do that?

Thanks a lot.
