One of your last lines of defense for just about any system is to have a backup in place in case there is a need to recover some or all of your data. This is also true for SQL Server. In this tutorial we will discuss selecting the correct recovery models, what backup options are available, and how to create backups using T-SQL commands and SQL Server Management Studio.
The INFORMATION_SCHEMA views allow you to retrieve metadata about the objects within a database.
