Script to construct a restore/recovery script

By Paul Brewer,

Run on a live production system to construct a recovery script from most recent full backup then all subsequent log file backups. Can override backup folder and data/log files WITH MOVE if restoring to a test server with different folder structure. Uses checksum where possible to verify backups. Ignores Symatech or other non SQL backups (VDI Devices) taken between full/transaction log backups. Lists backup files required for the recovery. The entire script, with the exception of the variable declarations and assignments, is actually a single SQL statement.
