Restoring filegroup backups
If you are periodically backing up only read-write filegroups as a part of your backup strategy. Refer to “Recovering a database from read-write backups” on page 86. For information on restoring read-only filegroups, refer to “Restoring read-only filegroups (SQL Server 2005)” on page 88.
Caution: If you attempt to restore a single differential backup without first restoring the preceding database backup file, SQL Server will halt the load process with an error such as 4305 or 4306. If you plan to restore a single differential, then you are responsible for first restoring the database backup file. You can avoid this problem by backing up the entire sequence of transaction logs, the differential backup, and the backup file to the same NetBackup Server and restoring the entire sequence of backup objects. See “Staging a full database recovery” on page 83.
