SQL Server – backup checksum default vs VSS

All we need is an easy explanation of the problem, so here it is.

A (hopefully) quick question – does enabling backup checksum default option affect VSS backups in any way?

How to solve :

I know you bored from this bug, So we are here to help you! Take a deep breath and look at the explanation of your problem. We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first method because it is tested & true method that will 100% work for you.

Method 1

This gives you a little bit of extra protection for your database backups, since the backup operation verifies each page for checksum and torn page, and generates a checksum for the entire backup. This is not a substitute for actually restoring you database backups on a regular basis, but it is a useful extra step to help ensure that your backups are actually good.

CHECKSUMs does not add too much CPU load but doing a VERIFYONLY does. There is no impact on vss snapshot creation.

Note: Use and implement method 1 because this method fully tested our system.
Thank you 🙂
