Backup definitions only - not data RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there,

    is it possible to protect only the definitions of a database and not the data? If you have a big database and only need the definitions backuped, then you could save a lot of storage space - and time.

    Regards,

    DPM does not have provisions for protecting only the definitions of a database.
