I have a set of full backups from a same SQL Server database saved in different files. For example:

  • 01.my-database.bak
  • 02.my-database.bak
  • 03.my-database.bak

I want to delete a specific table from those files to save disk space. There is a batch process to do that?


No, you can't edit the contents of backup files in this way. You should either compress the backup files or archive them to a different server or storage medium if you require them to be kept.
