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.

Making a video bigger
You can increase the size of your video to make it fill the screen like this:
Play your video (the icons shown won't appear until you do), then click on the full screen icon which appears as shown at its bottom right-hand corner.
When you've finished viewing a video in full screen mode, just press the Esc key to return to normal view.
Improving the quality of a video
To improve the quality of a video, first click on the Settings icon:
Make sure you're playing your video so that the icons shown appear, then click on this gear icon at the bottom right-hand corner.
Choose to change the video quality:
Click on Quality as shown to bring up the submenu.
The higher the number you choose, the better will be your video quality (but the slower the connection speed):
Don't choose the HD option unless you have a fast enough connection speed to support it!
Is your Wise Owl speaking too slowly (or too quickly)? You can also use the Settings menu above to change your playback speed.
