I have four super small databases that I need to migrate from SQL Server 2005 on one box and move to a brand new SQL Server 2008 R2 box.
I have backed up the databases and copied them to the new machine.
Should I create the new databases and then restore the backups?
Should I restore the backups, creating them in the process?
What's the most reliable and easy way to set these databases up on my new machine?
