Sybase supports tape drives and hard disks for backing up and restoring databases.
The dump command backs up databases and transaction logs.
The load command restores databases and transaction logs.
To copy Sybase-supplied databases, see Adaptive Server Enterprise Installation Guide for Windows NT.
Always use the Adaptive Server dump database and load database commands, rather than the NT backup and restore utilities, to back up and restore Adaptive Server databases. Using the Adaptive Server commands ensures database integrity.
For more information about backing up and restoring databases, see the System Administration Guide.
