Sync to databases nightly with BLOB data

I need some assistence here.

I have two servers. One with MS SQL 2000 Standard edition and MSDE(MS
desktop engine).

I need to sync my databases nightly, as a backup.

Is there a cheap software that will do this? I don't want to just
backup the entire databases files b/c they are large and I'm
transfering them over DSL.

I was thinking transaction logging, but I'm not sure. Is there a easy
way to do this?

I don't know how to accomplish this task.

PLEASE HELP.

You could indeed back up the transaction log, bring that over the network,
and then apply that log on the other database.

The catch here is that you must run with full or bulk_logged recovery, and
you must never truncate the log on the source server. If you do so, you
will need to bring a full backup over the net at this point.

Books Online is a good place to start. More precisely the Administering

I've heard of books online, but where is it, what is it? Is it a
website? What is the web address.

thank you

No, it is not a web site, it's on your hard disk. And if you can't find it,
read all of this post.

I see, but once I get to the webpage and try to download the file, it
states it's unavailable. No worries, I track it down.

Thank you.

That's bad. I will alert some people. I the mean time, check out the SQL
Server program group from the Start button.

I have over 5000 thumbnail pictures of size 5kb each. I would like to able to load all 5000 pictures and view 50 per page using mysql_data_seek(). I would like to know what are the advantages and disadvantages of using a MySQL blob field rather than reading the images directly from the file? How does one insert an image into a blob field? Can it be done dynamically? Thank you John

This may not be a MSSQL-specific question, but I wanted to ask it here first, in case there's a MSSQL and/or SourceSafe solution that will help. Our dev team is having some difficulty with keeping the nightly builds in sync with the stored proc mods. I'm wondering if there are some good case studies on how to avoid this "drift". Something like genning a new DB from checked-in SPs, etc. alongside each regular build,
