Question of the Day Ten

Let us continue our question of the day series with day ten.

Where are the recovery models for SQL Server?

There are three different recovery models for SQL Server:  simple, full, and bulk-logged.  The simple recovery model allows you to recover back to your last database or differential backup.  If that is nightly, then all of the changes since then will be lost.  The full recovery model allows for no work to be lost unless there is damage to the log file.  Finally, bulk-logged recovery model allows for the most high performance and smaller log file storage.
