Image backups

An image backup consists of a copy of the database file and/or the transaction log, each as separate files.

You can make an image backup using the Backup utility (dbbackup), the Create Backup Images Wizard, or the BACKUP DATABASE statement. Image backups are available on all supported platforms, and are the only supported type of backup on Windows Mobile.

If you want to make a backup to tape, use an archive backup. See Archive backups.
