Restoring SharePoint data

For best results, Quest recommends attempting recovery of SharePoint data from a recovery point. DocRetriever was designed first to take advantage of snapshot data saved by a Rapid Recovery or AppAssure Core.

If that option is not possible, you can then try recovery from an offline recovery source such as a SharePoint farm, content database, SQL backup file, or a SharePoint backup, in that order of preference.

Restoring data backed up in a recovery point

You can restore SharePoint data from a recovery point from a protected SharePoint front-end web server. To accomplish this:

1.
Mount the required recovery point. If mounting remotely (instead of from a Rapid Recovery Core), use the Local Mount Utility. For more information on using this utility, see Using the Local Mount Utility for DocRetriever.
3.
Perform data recovery. For more information on performing data recovery, see Recovering SharePoint data.

Restoring data backed up in SharePoint or SQL

If you cannot recover from a recovery point, then you can restore data from a backed-up copy of your SharePoint farm or SharePoint content database; from a SQL backup; or from a backup made from SharePoint. To accomplish this:

1.
2.
Consider the targeted restore direction in advance. For more information on specifying a location in which to restore files, see About restore directions for recovered data.
3.
Perform data recovery. For more information on performing data recovery from an open recovery source using DocRetriever, see Recovering SharePoint data.

Migrating SharePoint data

Quest recommends migrating data from a Rapid Recover recovery point. If that option is not possible, you can then migrate data from an offline recovery source such as a SharePoint farm, content database, SQL backup file, or a SharePoint backup, in that order of preference.
