Hi guys,

I'm just reading the SQL10 Adminstrator's Pocket Consultant (p 584) and was a bit confused with this part of the table of restore options:
"Full, differential, and transaction log backups
Back up the current transaction log with NO_TRUNCATE. Restore the last full backup with NORECOVERY, then transaction log backups, and then the last differential backup with NORECOVERY. Apply log backups from that time forward in sequence using NORECOVERY. Apply the last backup using the RECOVERY option."

The book has the order as:
1. Restore full backup
2. Restore some TLogs
3. Restore differential
4. Restore TLogs from the point of differential to failure

Surely #2 is not required as it's covered by #3?

Correct - 2 is not required

Every day is a school day, and don't trust anyone who tells you any different.
