    Unanswered: About tempdb

    Hi

    Being new to SQL server I would like some information regarding the tempdb database.

    I user SQL Server 2000.

    At present I appear to be backing up my tempdb but it has been failing since way back. It gives me this error when trying to bakup the database:

    Executed as user: NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM. Backup and restore operations are not allowed on database tempdb. [SQLSTATE 42000] (Error 3147) BACKUP DATABASE is terminating abnormally. [SQLSTATE 42000] (Error 3013). The step failed.

    Can someone give me a basic grounding as to what the tempdb is used for and should I back it up or not?

    Thanks in advance

    Neil.
