Check Which Files are Included in a Backup Device

Check Which Files are Included in a Backup Device

In SQL Server, if you just want to check which data- and logfiles are included in a database backup device, you can use ‘RESTORE FILELISTONLY FROM xyz’ (with xyz representing the actual device) for this. For example, on my machine, the following command gives the result specified below:

 RESTORE FILELISTONLY FROM DISK = 'D:MSSQLBackupMyDB.bak'
LogicalNamePhysicalNameTypeFileGroupNameSizeMaxSize
MyDB_DataD:MSSQLDataMyDB_Data.MDFDPRIMARY688128035184372080640
MyDB_LogD:MSSQLDataMyDB_Log.LDFLNULL288358435184372080640
