Backup devices

Here’s my crib-sheet of commands for dealing with ‘backup devices’ …

USE master;
GO

--list
select * from sys.backup_devices

--create
--EXEC sp_addumpdevice 'disk', 'somedevicename', '\somebackupserverSomebackupshareSomeservernameSomeinstancenameSomedatabasename.bak';

--delete
--EXEC sp_dropdevice 'somedevicename';
