I'm about to move all the Indexes of an existing table to a different FileGroup and LUN. This is not due performance issues but in order to reduce backup time and backup space.

Should I move all Indexes to that FileGroup or only the Cluster Index? I know in case of a disaster recovery scenario, the whole table will be unavailable until I restore the CI, am I right about that?

Additional details: the table itself is about 200GB. Database size is 1.1 TB. We use RedGate backups.

Cheers ...
