SQL Server Maintenance Plans

Maintenance plans

SQL Server databases are typically not backed up by regular backup software. Unless you know for certain that your backup software can handle SQL Server backups, please set up a maintenance plan to backup your ThoughtFarmer database at least once every day. If you have your database configured to use a full recovery model, you must also ensure that you configure a daily log file backup.

Recovery Models

We do not recommend that any customers use a Full recovery model. Unless you have a full-time database administrator on staff, please configure your database with a Simple recovery model.
