Partition Backups

Is there a way to back up a partition in 2008? Or do you just align a partition with a filegroup?

I'm looking at multiple partitions on an "archive" filegroup but may want to back up a given partition to restore the data in a test environment.

More filegroups = more files = more management.

Align it with a filegroup. Then perform the backup on the filegroup.

New code box

There's a new way to format code on the site - the red speech bubble logo will automatically format T-SQL for you. The original code box is still there for XML, etc. More details here.
