i would like to know weather did you got time to check on my query?
So sorry for delay- I have been away. I did verify the instructions I gave and found they work well because the agent ensure everything runs in the correct sequence.
what is the purpose of re-running a backup right after having shrunk down the log file like rafiqahmeds was asking?
I think the strategy here is:
1. Ensure you always have a back-up
2. Take extra step to create an 'efficient' back-up- one that has no redundant information in.
The extra step is not essential but if ever the backup needs to be transported- you've got the absolute minimal size of backup handy.
Its quite an unusual strategy since step 2 is not usually necessary but it can be very smart in the use case mentioned (transportation of file).
