Restoring data

Understanding the SharePoint restore process

This topic provides an overview on using the plug-in to restore and recover farms, web applications, and Individual Collection Sites.

Understanding the available types of restores

To perform a successful restore, you must have a full understanding of the types of restores that are available.

Restoring a Single Full farm Backup: The restore of a single Full Backup is seen as a restore sequence by the plug-in. Therefore, certain steps must be followed to restore a single Full Backup and render its recovered data suitable for use by SharePoint.
Restoring a Full + Differential farm Backup sequence: Assuming that Full Backups are performed every Sunday at 11:00 p.m. and Differential Backups are performed Monday through Saturday at 11:00 p.m., the day on which recovery is performed determines what backups must be recovered. (For example, if recovery is performed on Tuesday, Sunday's Full Backup and Monday's Differential Backup must be restored. If recovery is performed on Thursday, Sunday's Full Backup followed by Wednesday's Differential Backup must be restored.) After the Full Backup is restored, you would restore the latest Differential Backup.
Restoring an Individual Site Collection Backup: When restoring an Individual Site Collection backup, ensure that the web application that the individual site collection belongs to exists. If the web application does not exist, re-create the web applications before you perform the restore. Next, verify that the content databases where the individual site collections are stored have a status of Started in the SharePoint Central Administration utility. After completing these prerequisites, you can restore the applicable backup.
