Different Backup mode in SQL Server. As a DBA you must know how point of time recovery performed?

Answer : Point In-Time recovery means we need to recover data till the specific given time, it depends on which back up types are issued.

We have a database and we are performing full, differential, and transaction log backups.

Due to data corruption we need to recover/restore our database till 3:17 AM.

We have the latest transaction log file available at 3:30 AM.

1. Restore the most recent full backup with the NORECOVERY clause. 2. Restore the most recent differential backup with the NORECOVERY clause. 3.

Restore the last transaction log backup (3:30 AM) with the RECOVERY clause and a STOPAT (3:17 AM) statement.
