SQL Server 2005 Bug

I was just made aware of a new bug (oops I mean undocumented feature) in SQL 2005 that prevents the backup of File Groups that scroll beyond the viewable area of the Backup Dialog box.
This is not a problem if you have only a few file groups but if you have enough that you can’t see them all without scrolling then you will only be able to back up the ones that you can see before you touch the scroll bar.
Thanks Peter!!
