Could you help me to estimate how long it takes to archive 400 GB records from one of our test databases located on SQL Server 2000? Also, what would be the best approach?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

That will all depend on how wide the records are. It could take anywhere from a few minutes to several hours.

    Have you considered upgrading to SQL Server 2005. Archiving like this can take miliseconds in 2005 using partitioning. Standard MS Support for SQL Server 2000 has now lapsed so it is really time to bit the bullet and upgrade -although SQL Server 2008 is just around the corner.
