A future proof backup plan.

Yup, I’m really getting to like SQL 2008. How’s this for two backup plans? The first completes a full backup of every database (system included) every 1am. The second backs up the transaction-logs of every database every 4 hours, from 00:45.

The beauty is, plan-1 will automatically incorporate any new databases that the developer cares to create. Similarly plan-2, backs-up every database’s transaction log, ignoring those in Simple recovery mode.
