On the General page, click on the Timeline button, and we can use the new Timeline slide to repeat the entire RESTORE operation, but this time setting the exact target time for our point in time recovery point, gradually walking forward in in time, until we identify the exact time when the data was deleted, as shown in Figure 8.

How do you identify the exact time when the data was deleted?

With the timeline function, you walk the time forward while using RESTORE WITH STANDBY and querying to see if the data exists or not. If you want to get more precise you can read the log records from the log file using fn_dump_dblog() like Paul shows in this blog post:

Using fn_dblog, fn_dump_dblog, and restoring with STOPBEFOREMARK to an LSN

Thanks for the pointer to Paul’s blog. Both the articles are excellent!!!
