SUMMARY

This article describes the following about this hotfix release:
  • The issues that are fixed by this hotfix package
  • The prerequisites for installing the hotfix package
  • Whether you must restart your computer after you install the hotfix package
  • Whether the hotfix package is replaced by any other hotfix package
  • Whether you must make any registry changes
  • The files that are contained in the hotfix package

SYMPTOMS

In SQL Server 2000, differential backups may not contain Page Free Space (PFS) pages if the following conditions are true:
  • The PFS page was allocated between the last full backup and the differential backup.
  • The PFS page allocation was part of a file growth that is larger than 64 MB.

CAUSE

This problem may occur when the conditions that are mentioned in the "Symptoms" section are true. The PFS page may not be marked as changed in the Differential Changed Map (DCM) page during differential database backup. SQL Server can recover from restoring empty PFS pages. However, SQL Server may not recover when the PFS pages track text and image data.

Note You can determine database file growth by using Performance Monitor. Set the Data File(s) Size (KB) counter on the SQLServer: Databases(DatabaseName) object.

Note Because of file dependencies, the most recent hotfix that contains these files may also contain additional files.

WORKAROUND

To work around this problem, make a full backup of your database instead of a differential backup after the database file growth has occurred.

Note The transaction log backups are not affected by this problem.

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a bug in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
