                Indexes can be very useful for select queries but large no. of indexes can made DML operation performance pathetic. And if  we decide or get recommendation to drop these indexes , The best practice says to disable it first and if every thing goes good go ahead and drop index

 /*******************SQL Syntax************************/

USE [DB_name]
GO
----Disable Index
ALTER INDEX [Index_Name] ON [Table_Name] DISABLE
GO
---- Disable All Indexes
ALTER INDEX ALL ON [Table_Name] DISABLE
GO
 ----Enable Index
ALTER INDEX [Index_Name] ON [Table_Name] REBUILD
GO
----Enable All Index
ALTER INDEX ALL ON [Table_Name] REBUILD
GO

Before disabling index we should not for get below:

  • Disabling a non clustered index prevents user access to the index.
  • Disabling clustered indexes on table doesn't delete data but prevents user access to underlying table data.
  • Disabling a non clustered or clustered index on a view physically deletes the index data.
  • Enabling index means you have to rebuild it, There is no keyword called as enable.
