transfer snapshot vs transfer backup set?


Recommended Posts

Is a "transfer snapshot" selecting "all snapshots" and "all files" the same as a "transfer backup set"?



Back up to disk 1, then transfer the data to disk 2.

I would like to transfer all of the *.rdb files from disk 1 to 2, so that should disk 1 fail, I can simply copy the files from disk 2 back to the original location (on a replacement disk). I am not sure which option, "transfer backup set" or "transfer snapshot", achieves that goal.


Better yet, is there just a "file copy" script in retrospect? This way I could copy the catalog files off to a large disk too. We could use something like robocopy or xcopy, but were hoping that there was a feature inside retrospect for some of our non-windows admins.
