When is a SQL server differential backup required?

  • A relatively small portion of the data in the database has changed since the last database backup. Differential database backups are most efficient if the same data is modified frequently.
  • You are using the Simple Recovery model, which does not permit Transaction log backups, and you want to perform backups more frequently than is practical for full database backups.
  • You are using the Full or Bulk-Logged Recovery model and want to minimize the time it takes to roll forward Transaction log backups when restoring a database.

Creating MS SQL Server transaction log backup.

  • Transaction log backup is a backup for log files of a database .
  • Backing up the transaction log periodically to create a sequence of transaction log backups offers users the most flexibility in restoring databases.
  • By creating transaction log backups, a database can be restored to any point in time contained within the sequence of transaction logs, right up to the point of failure , because it is possible to back up the currently active transaction log even if the database is inaccessible.
