Figure 4. Backup Encryption
Backup files (both logical backups
and snapshot images)
of encrypted databases will always be encrypted,
regardless of the settings here, using the database encryption key.
Logical backups of unencrypted databases, will be encrypted using the key provided here.
You can use either the key suggested by RavenDB, or a valid key from any other source.
Logical backups of encrypted databases will use the database's encryption key,
even if you provide a different key here.
Snapshot images of unencrypted databases will always be unencrypted, regardless of the settings here,
since a snapshot is a faithful bitmap copy of the database.
|Backup Encryption and Key Used
