The bulk-logged recovery model is a special-purpose model that works in a similar manner to the full recovery model. The only difference is in the way it handles bulk data modification operations. The bulk-logged model records these operations in the transaction log using a technical known as minimal logging. This saves significantly on processing time, but prevents you from using the point-in-time restore option.

Microsoft recommends that the bulk-logged recovery model only be used for short periods of time. Best practice dictates that you switch a database to the bulk-logged recovery model immediately before conducting bulk operations and restore it to the full recovery model when those operations complete.
