This is a great suggestion! We will consider this in our roadmap.

Ability to create an environment copy with randomized partial data instead of Full Data or No Data will surely help with online storage maintenance.

Also as a immediate solution, can you please add an option to skip log file during DB restore from production?

I'd like to see a robust UI where you can set up a "Environment Copy Template" that identifies the source (almost always prod) and the target (some sandbox), and enables you to select specific tables to copy data from, and more importantly identify tables you do NOT want to bring over. Ideally, for those specific tables copied, we'd be able to specify an advanced-find like/FetchXML based query that would identify the specific rows to copy (such as "Last 3 Months", e.g.). (It could also be a "solution-based" copy, where we create a solution that identifies the tables to copy.)

We use lookups extensively, and hence have dozens of reference tables that need to copied to each environment. We have years of historical transactional data that does NOT. Today, because i have to copy the entire production data set, we spend days running bulk delete jobs and Power Automate flows to remove data in a copied environment. Very inefficient use of resources.

And options to don't copy LOGS

Love this idea, although i would probable prefer the data from the last X amount of day or something. More or less from a process point of view, i rather pull hopefully what would be newer and cleaner to test with, versus potentially pulling older data that might of been under a different process.
