hi everyone,

I have SharePoint 2013 and SQL 2014 server in PROD and DEV environments (separate systems for each environments). I wanted to know the best practice for backing up the SharePoint content database from Prod and restoring to Dev environment (refreshing the data). My understanding is that when refreshing the SQL databases the content will be overwritten but can still use the same site within SharePoint - please help!

Thanks in advance.
