Accelerated Database Recovery and Filegroups

Randolph West shows a change to Accelerated Database Recovery in SQL Server 2019 CTP 3.2 and later:

ADR makes use of a per-database version store, instead of putting everything in the transaction log and TempDB. In most cases, the payoff more than makes up for valuable transaction log and TempDB storage. In my testing, enabling ADR requires around 10% additional storage in your database file.

Read on to see how you enable this.
