Lady Gaga The Fame and Sql Server 2008 R2

I enjoy reading from Brent Ozar.
I liked his review of Sql Server 2008 in his blog where he compared it with Lady Gaga's premier album The Fame and its sophomore.

Go ahead and have a read and enjoy

Using TRUNCATE_ONLY in SQL Server 2008

After upgrading to SQL Server 2008 from 2005, I got an error with one of my scripts. I am using Sql 2008 SqlExpress 10GB.
This is my T-SQL

And I get this error:
Msg 155, Level 15, State 1, Line 1
'TRUNCATE_ONLY' is not a recognized BACKUP option.

So I asked myself if there is an option similar to what 'TRUNCATE_ONLY' was doing in 2005?
I posted a query at Ask Sql Server Central

I got very nice responses, including a link to this article by Brent Ozar

Check out the responses above, hope it helps you if you are upgrading to Sql Server 2008.
