Default How to Backup database - SQL Server 2000


I was looking around for some tutorials about how to backup my database in my hard disk using SQL Server 2000 Enterprise Manager.

Can someone explain me in a friendly and step-by-step method? (screenshots preferred)

Thanx so much in advance

It is usually best to learn how to backup your databases more than one way.

In enterprise Manager
right database
select task
select backup database

using t-sql
-- ===========================
-- Backup Database Sample===========================
    TO DISK = N'D:\SQLBACKUPSample.bak'
    NAME = N'Sample-Full Database Backup',
    STATS = 10;

Hi Cancer,

1- Open Enterprise Manager
2- Find The Database you want to Backup(by expanding SQL SERVER GROUP > SERVER > DATABASES)
3- Right Click on the Database to get the popup menu
4- Go to "All tasks"
5- select "Backup Database..."
6- on the "GENERAL" tab..
     .Desired Database is already Selected, if not, select that
     .U can choose the backup type, by default "COMPLETE" is selected
     .Click on "Add..." button to give the path u want the backup to be saved
     .Choose the Path and append filename
     . Now click on "OK", Now u r back to the "GENERAL" tab
     . Click on "OK" again

Rest would be taken care of the Enterprise Manager.
On Completion of Backup you Will Get the Messege.
