TFS Powertools used for backups RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a few quesitons about the Backup feature in the tfs powertools.

    First if you used the back up feature is any compression of the backups being done?

    Does it only work with native backups?

    Does it take your collections offline before making the backup?

  • Hi brthomas,

    Thank you for your post.

    As far as i know, TFS backups TFS database to .bak file.

    For "native backup", I hope you can provide more information.

    Collection database does not offline while backup.

    If anything is unclear, please free feel to let me know.

    Regards,
