SQL Server 2016 videos | SQL Server 2016 Pt 3 - System Databases, Backing Up and Restoring

Posted by Andrew Gould on 01 November 2016

SQL Server creates several important system databases when you install a new instance. This video explains what the master, model, msdb and tempdb databases are for along with a couple of the interesting things you can do with them. You'll also see how you can easily create a backup of the system databases and, somewhat more awkwardly, how to restore those backups in the event that something goes wrong.
