This section explains how to select a state as of which you want to restore your databases.
You can select either of the following states:
- The latest available state
To restore your data as of the latest state that is available in your backup file.
- The point-in-time state
To restore your data as of particular point-in-time state that will allow you to revert the database to a state before an undesired transaction or before any point of failure. This feature requires a log backup.
The data will be restored in the following manner:
- Database files will be copied to the original location and then mounted to the original SQL server.
- If a database with the same name already exists on a target SQL server, it will be replaced with the database from a backup file.
