Our nightly full (and periodic differential) backups are becoming quite large, due mostly to the amount of indexes on our tables; roughly half the backup size is comprised of indexes.
We're using the Simple recovery model for our backups.
Is there any way, through using
FileGroups or some other file-partitioning method, to exclude indexes from the backups?
It would be nice if this could be extended to full-text catalogs, as well.
