    Unanswered: SQL Server 2000 Database Back up file size

    I am having a bit of a mare on the database backup front - i.e. monster
    DB, not a great deal of space to back it up into.

    As I do the backup, the file on the disk seems to stay at 2KB

    How does the file get written? Is there a temp somewhere first?


    Cheers in advance - Dave

    I'm not sure what youre asking; do you mean the backup-file initially gets a size of 2 Kb, remains this size only to get larger at the very end? What kind of backup is done (full, differential)? Are we talking about a backup to a FILE or to another Database?
