I'm using Microsoft's Windows Server Backup tool on a Windows 2008 R2 Server running SQL Server 2008.
I want to take a disk image of a drive on which SQL Server is running (databases are on the drive and it has ldf, mdf, and ndf suffixed files).
The drive is the D drive and does not contain windows or the sql server programs (or any other program folders). Those are all on the C drive.
I only want to take an image of the D drive.
Will the disk image skip the *.ldf, *.mdf, & *.ndf files, fail, or handle them fine without my stopping or pausing SQL Server?
