The convention is now used for backward compatibility. Three versions later, isn’t it time for a more appropriate name for that stored procedure? 25 26 CHAPTER 2 ■ MAKING DATABASE BACKUPS Dropping a Backup Device Dropping a backup device is even simpler than creating one: Sp_dropdevice @logicalname='AWBackup' This command only removes the backup device definition—it doesn’t automatically delete the files contained therein. Use this command to remove all the files in addition to the device definition: Sp_dropdevice @logicalname='AWBackup', @devfile='DELFILE' The literal 'DELFILE' is required for completely dropping the device and all the files associated with it—not the most intuitive command.

In Chapter 5, I’ll discuss overall planning, and Chapter 13 will focus on the types of business and interpersonal pressures that can make this job so difficult.
