Restoring a Database Using a Temporary Instance

Scenario 1

The data at the backup time point is able to meet business requirements. In other words, data at that backup time point can be directly used to overwrite the target database (or the target table).

  • There is an existing full backup before the data loss.
  • No instance restoration operations (overwriting restoration) are performed after the specified time point.

Scenario 2

In the previous scenario, normal incremental data after the time point is discarded. However, sometimes we need to save the data after the backup time point.
