[SQL Snacks Video] Tail Log Backup and Recovery Demo

[SQL Snacks Video] Tail Log Backup and Recovery Demo

In December 2013 I presented at a SQL Saturday event in Washington DC. My presentation was about Backup and Recovery Fundamentals which I had done before for the PASS DBA Fundamentals Virtual Chapter. This time around, I decided to add a Tail Log (Active Log) Backup and Recovery demo to enhance my Presentation. The presentation went quite well, and so I’ve decided to put a short video together to demonstrate how to do a Tail Log Backup and Recovery.

***Make sure you change the backup, database, and log file paths to match your configuration***

[SQL Snacks Video] Introducing SQL Snacks! A healthy alternative to boring learning!

[SQL Snacks Video] Introducing SQL Snacks! A healthy alternative to boring learning!

To snack lovers every where now you can consume SQL Learning the same way, in Snack Size!  Introducing the new way to snack with 0 calories intake, a simple solution to your learning cravings and available 24/7 from the click of a button!

Late last year I introduced my YouTube Channel with a short video on Hyper-V followed by a 10 hour series of teaching SQL Server in Arabic.  This year, I hope to continue with those projects and in addition to that add to my newest delicious invention, the SQL Snack.  The idea of this video series is to provide short videos to teach SQL Server content; and other technologies relevant to SQL Professionals on a daily basis.  This allows for people to grab a snack and enjoy a short learning experience instead of having to sit down for a long drawn out lecture.  Real snack is optional and not provided by me… sorry!

Below is the SQLSnacks Playlist you can also access it at the top menu by hovering over “Videos” and selecting it.

Please enjoy and please feel free to suggest topics you would like to see in the comments and I will try to do my best to accommodate your requests.
