I was wondering if you have been tracking the discussion on this, it would be awesome to us if we could just backup the data and then just build the non-clustered indexes.

    Interesting. However, the backup data used by SQL Backup is provided by the SQL Server engine, not extracted by SQL Backup directly. For the backup to strip out the indexes, it will have to be supported by the SQL Server engine first.
