Find Out The Recovery Model For Your Database

You want to quickly find out what the recovery model is for your database but you don’t want to start clicking and right-clicking in SSMS/Enterprise Manager to get that information. This is what you can do, you can use databasepropertyex to get that info. Replace ‘msdb’ with your database name


What if you want it for all databases in one shot? No problem here is how, this will work on SQL Server version 2000

FROM sysdatabases

For SQL Server 2005 and up, you should use the following command

SELECT name,recovery_model_desc
FROM sys.databases
