I know that this is outside of the scope of the script, but I do think it would be useful to follow through to the end and explain how we recover the files that are backed up with this script.

I am planning to invoke a BCDR scenario where I recover to an alternative front-end web server and an alternative back-end database.

I know that this post is a year old, but can anyone provide some steps in restoring a site with these files? This tool is wonderful and works like a champ, but it is useless to me if i don't know how to perform a restore using the files that are being backed up. Someone please help me.

I agree with this topic.

Please help us to restore from backup for ensuring that script is the better way to backup sharepoint

Thanks for advance,

Nice backup script . Only I don't seem to know how to go about recovering the data thats been saved .

ON a test enviroment of couse ,first i  reload , os then sql 2005 then wss 3.0  then all patches to os,sql,wss.

 i got the iis metadata step recovery ok.

  not sure about the hive 12  , i asssume it just  drag a drop over the exiting 12-hive folders.

spbackup if i go with  the admin console it does not recover the content database so it reports.

i then presume i must somehow use the ..12/bin/stsadm  command

Could some provide me more clarity on this aspect of the recovery process?

How to restore failed SP web-application, site collection or site in case of a failure?

Can you please provide ANY help on "how to make the data collected by this script useful"?
