Split SQL database backups into multiple backup files using SSMS

In this article, I am going to explain how we can split the large backup file into multiple small backup files using SSMS 2016. I will also explain how we can combine multiple backups to restore a database and split the backup of the SQL database using SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS).

When we generate a backup of the large database, it is advisable to generate the backup in multiple files. This process reduces the time to generate the backup. If your business requirement is to download the backup of a large database, then downloading multiple backup files method is way faster than downloading one large backup file.

To demonstrate the process, I have restored the AdventureWorks2017 database on my workstation. We are going to perform this task using SQL Server Management Studio.

To generate the backup, open SQL Server Management Studio -> Connect to the database engine -> Expand Databases -> Right-click on AdventureWorks2017 database -> Hover on Tasks -> Click on Back Up…

You can refer to the following image:

Open Backup Database dialog box

A dialog box Backup database opens. We want to generate a full backup of the AdventureWorks2017 database, hence choose AdventureWorks2017 from the database drop-down box. In the backup type drop-down box, choose FULL. See the following image:

SSMS 2016 Backup Database dialog box

To generate the multiple backup files, click on Add. (Screen-1) A dialog box, Select Backup Location opens (Screen-2). In this dialog box, we can specify the location where you want to put the backup file. In the File Name text box, you can see the backup path, which is the default location of the backup file. We can specify a different location. To choose the desired location, click on the balloon (…) See the following image:

Select backup destination

In Locate Database Files dialog box, choose the desired location where you want to put the backup file. Provide the desired name of backup in the File Name text box. Click OK to close the dialog box. See the following image:

SSMS 2016 Locate database files

On the Select Backup Destination dialog box, the backup destination has been changed. Click OK to close the Select Backup Destination dialog box. See the following image:

Select Backup Destination

On the Back Up Database screen, you can see the location of the backup in the list box within the destination section. See the following image:

To generate multiple backup files, follow the above process again. Once the destination of the backup files has been configured, the Back Up Database dialog box looks like the following image:

Introduction to Structured Query Language SQL pdf

SQL stands for Structured Query Language. SQL is a scripting language expected to store, control, and inquiry information put away in social databases. The main manifestation of SQL showed up in 1974, when a gathering in IBM built up the principal model of a social database. The primary business social database was discharged by Relational Software later turning out to be Oracle.

Models for SQL exist. In any case, the SQL that can be utilized on every last one of the major RDBMS today is in various flavors. This is because of two reasons:

1. The SQL order standard is genuinely intricate, and it isn’t handy to actualize the whole standard.

2. Every database seller needs an approach to separate its item from others.

Right now, contrasts are noted where fitting.

System Databases in SQL Server


In SSMS, we many of may noticed System Databases under the Database Folder. But how many of us knows its purpose?. In this article lets discuss about the System Databases in SQL Server.

System Database

Fig. 1 System Databases

There are five system databases, these databases are created while installing SQL Server.

  • Master
  • Model
  • MSDB
  • Tempdb
  • Resource
  • This database contains all the System level Information in SQL Server. The Information in form of Meta data.
  • Because of this master database, we are able to access the SQL Server (On premise SQL Server)
  • This database is used as a template for new databases.
  • Whenever a new database is created, initially a copy of model database is what created as new database.
  • This database is where a service called SQL Server Agent stores its data.
  • SQL server Agent is in charge of automation, which includes entities such as jobs, schedules, and alerts.
  • The Tempdb is where SQL Server stores temporary data such as work tables, sort space, row versioning information and etc.
  • User can create their own version of temporary tables and those are stored in Tempdb.
  • But this database is destroyed and recreated every time when we restart the instance of SQL Server.
  • The resource database is a hidden, read only database that holds the definitions of all system objects.
  • When we query system object in a database, they appear to reside in the sys schema of the local database, but in actually their definitions reside in the resource db.
