How do I perform full backup of a TFS database without affecting the scheduled backups?

Solution:

You can perform a Copy-Only backup in SQL Server. A Copy-Only is a SQL Server backup that is independent of the sequence of conventional SQL Server backups.

  • Open SQL Server Management Studio
  • Right Click on the TFS database you want to backup
  • Select Tasks --> Back Up... menu

 

  • On the General page of the Back Up Database dialog box, select the Copy Only Backup option.

 

  • Click OK
