Restoring Latest or Point-in-Time State

In this article

    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 in your backup file.

    • The point-in-time state

    To restore your data as of the selected point-in-time state (requires 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.
