Not sure I get the point of the trick question.
It should be clear that you can restore to ANY point in time (at each 15 minute interval in this example). However, restoring to the 9:30 state will not recover your TRUNCATEd table ... so was that thrown in as a red herring ?
If so, it got me ...

The question asked: Is it now possible to restore to a given point in time?

It is possible, so the answer is certainly yes. The question didn't ask if it was possible to restore that specific table to any given point in time.


Anyway, nice question.

Hi - I think you may have overthought things a bit - it wasn't meant to be a complicated or trick question, but just to find out if people thought that TRUNCATE TABLE somehow affected the validity of the transaction log. It doesn't.

Thanks for the feedback though, maybe I should have made the question clearer somehow.

Thanks for the question Duncan. I had a feeling that this question was more at testing our understanding of the truncate statement than the recovery models.
