Hi Fellow DBA's
I have a rather sad situation here and i hope i can get some assistance here on this forum. I have a DB that has been failing to back up since September, we only realised this late in December because we were sloppy.
When i run a backup here is the error that i get, all the time. It runs up to 50% all the time. I am dreading to restore a September backup because the information there is old, and it means that it might take a month of recapturing again.
1. I have run a DBCC CHECKDB set to single user and here is what i get.
2. Seems there are 0 errors and 0 inconsistency on the database. Yet it does not backup. The results are as follows:
CHECKDB found 0 allocation errors and 0 consistency errors in database 'People'.
My question is where does this error come from and how best can i fix it, without restoring a September backup. PS: We are still able to use this DB and write information on it, we just cant back it up - GUI or T-SQL route. Is there a way to copy the DB in its current state or clone it?
Running SQL: Server 2012
Thank you for your assistance in advance.
