    Yes there is, and it's all available within SQL Server Management Studio. To read how to do it, open Books Online. Click Start, All Programs, SQL Server, Documentation and Tutorials, and select Books Online. Type 'backup' into the search box and see what comes up. There are tons of articles in there that explain everything you ever need to know about how to set up the right recovery model and how to create a backup plan that makes sense to your organization.

    SQL Server Enterprise Manager?
    You are still on SQL 2000?
    You'd better upgrade to SQL 2008R2.

    A remarks: You can also use SQL Server Management Studio with SQL 2000.

    Sorry for the late post here but I don't think SQL Server Enterprise Manager is still SQL Server 2000.

    If I'm not mistaken that's the name of the rdbms gui system for SQL Server

    Starting from SQL 2005, SQL Server Enterprise Manager is not used any more. It has been replaces with SQL Server Management Studio.

    Ok, yeah should have known that myself, but due to a current assignment I haven't seen SQL Server in 6 months now

    Cause I've been pressed into Navision and I have no idea for how long so found it best to start looking for answers to questions that I expect to get in the future.

    I think the best is to start reading blogs (start with the blog section and in there you will find links to even more blogs). When you have some real problem, search the forum.
    When I started with SQL server I made the error to start reading some forums of SQL server and got overwhelmed even if I started searching for certain topics I wanted to know more about. So I started reading blogs.

    Even just checking the blogs was already overwhelming but if there was a topic I wanted to know something about, I learned something useful. The topics where not always so useful (Actually very few were).
    The reason is, I think, that blogs are written by persons that know about what they are writing and have been thinking about it. The forum topics are started by users that have a question, others that ask more questions about the questions and in the end (if you are lucky), you just have the answer about 1 very specific problem.

    OK, had bad experience last year when we we're tasked with moving an Oracle db to SQL Server, we/I had a lot of errors which we're caused by lack of information on the clients part.
    After months of me searching we came to a point where we realised the copy of the datbase given had been corrupted on creation and unusable.
