Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Folks,
Apologies for aksing what might be a very simple question, but can I backup a database and ignore the databases FTI catalog?

These backups will be restored to a different server and the FTI Catalog isn't necessarry.

Thanks
BW

UPDATE

Folks, I eventually gave up on this and came at the problem from a completely different direction, one which doesn't involve backing up and restoring the database.

Thanks again.
