Using BACKUP and RESTORE in SQL Server -- Full Backups

In a typical installation SQL Server stores its data in two files. One has an MDF extension and stores the data itself and the other has an LDF extension and stores the transaction log. You can configure SQL Server to have multiple data files and multiple transaction log files if you'd like but that's beyond the scope of this article. When SQL Server processes a transaction it goes through the following steps:

  1. It writes what it's going to do to the transaction log.
  2. It makes the change to the data file. This change is typically made on the in-memory copy of that portion of the data file.
  3. It writes to the log that the transaction is committed.
  4. The CHECKPOINT process writes the portion data file associated with the transaction to disk. This might happen anywhere from seconds to minutes after the step above.
  5. It writes to the log that the transaction is "hardened".
