Making a backup, renaming the original transaction log

This set of backup options is typically used for databases involved in replication. In addition to making backup copies of the database file and transaction log, the transaction log at backup time is renamed to an offline log, and a new transaction log is started with the same name as the log in use at backup time.

For more information about when to use this set of backup options, see A backup scheme for databases involved in replication.
