    SQL Server Differential backup in a separate file

    I think I'm missing something.

    I already have a full backup. What I want to do is to create a differential backup, but save it in a separate file, rather than adding it to the existing file. When I tried to make a new file and do a differential backup, the new file was twice as big as the original backup.

    How would that be done?

    Take a look in BOL at backing up the transaction log.

    Also, if disk space is a problem you could buy a product like "Red Gate SQL Backup." It's not free but you can keep more backups on hand by producing small backups.

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
