    Hello Tushar,

    The database forces you to make at least one data backup before taking any log backup (including the automatic ones).

    However you should not rely on the initial data backup alone but, should create a data backup from time to time. This will increase your chances for an undamaged data backup to start the restore and it will decrease the number of log backups you need to recover and therefore decreases the restore times.

    Best regards,

    Tilo Heinrich

    As you see yourself, this command just make backups of your LOG area, not of the data area.

    If you would need to recover, you would need to take you last data backup and apply all logs since then.
