Backup and Restore

Many of you may have come across this, but I thought i'd write about it. We have a SharePoint application who's database has hit over 50gb (should split it, but ill post about that later). Anyway, TSM backups keep failing and stsadm backups work fine, however fail during the restore process. A qucik way to fix this is to use Central Admin backup and restore. Its simple, and it worked fine for the problem we were having.

I still HIGHLY recommend spliting the content database to more than one db as it's getting very big and SQL will manage it much better. As I said, I will post about how to split it later when I get a chance.
