Hi, this may not be in the roght forum.
I have huge backup files (18gb) but I am required to retrieve data from a certain date. so I have to Copy the backup to the server and restore it (which takes ages for both operations). Can I virtually mount the backup and treat it as a database to perform actions on it.
I have an SP that copies data copy the restored table to the live table, so If if I could do this from a virtual table, I would save myself and my clinet hours of wasted time.
SQL Server doesn't have the licks to do that but there is third party software out there that does. RedGate used to have something that would do that but I believe they discontinued it... could be wrong there, though.
