Help Please - Backup FileGroup and Restore

SQL 2000

I have server1 with two filegroups.
I want to backup FileGroup Primary on Server1 and Primary has a
physical file called MyData.mdf.

I have server2 with the same database and two filegroups BUT the
Physical names are different. The Primary FileGroup is in physical file

How can I get server1->MyData.mdf to Server2->OurData.mdf

Thanks !

First backup it, then restore with:

RESTORE DATABASE db FROM disk=<path-to-backupfile>
WITH MOVE 'db_data' TO 'OurData.mdf',
MOVE 'db_log' TO 'OurData.log,

dn_data and db_log are the name of the logical files, you find these
with sp_helpdb on the source database or RESTORE DATABASE FILELIST_ONLY.
In the TO part, you need to specify complete path.

Also see the topic on RESTORE in Books Online.

Hello All I am currently doing a project on MS SQL Server 2005 where I am in need of table level backup/restore. I know about FILEGROUP. But in our project using FILEGROUP is not feasible. As far as I know MS SQL Server 2005 does not support Table level restore directly. Moreover relational integrity is also matter. Is there any clever trick or 3rd party free software to do table level restore/backup? Please Help.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
