Full backups
A full backup backs up all of the data of a database, including the BI files. You can perform a full backup using either the PROBKUP utility or an operating system utility. Ideally, you should perform a full backup of your database every day. However, depending on your recovery plan, you might decide to do less frequent full backups and more frequent incremental backups, or use after-imaging.
