We are doing nightly full backups and noon differential backups. We use Full recovery model with SQL Server 2005, but logs are never backed up and are truncated(TRUNCATE_ONLY) after the full backup.
Restoring to a point in time is not a requirement, restoring to one of the nightly or noon backups is sufficient (Not my decision).
So the question at hand is, since they are throwing away the logs every night, is there any reason to not use Simple Recovery model? Is there any benefit to using Full Recovery model if we are throwing out the logs every night?
