Can you define what you mean by "logging"? You mean the SQL Server database's transaction log?

comment Database Migration - Create New Filegroup and Move Objects
I'm not sure I understand why you would need to create a new filegroup to move the data. What is wrong with the traditional and simple backup on source server, and restore on destination server?

Your WHERE clause using GETDATE() won't give the desired behavior. That'll test for the current datetime, whether it is Saturday/Sunday. You'd have to specify the Date column there to get the OP's end results.

comment Stored Procedure null parameter within where clause
Don't do @param = null. You need to do @param is null. Nothing can be "equal" to NULL.
