Good question. I over thought and picked the wrong answer. Yes, you can restore the database from any of the snapshots, you just have to delete all but the one you want to restore from before you can.

Cool

Weird logic. I don't understand how the answer could be "No", while in fact the database can be restored from any of the snapshots (although not with a single RESTORE DATABASE command). Seems to be pure sophistry.

Hi all,

I got it right - more luck then judgement though.

I am just curious of peoples views on the terminology.

Microsoft here:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms189281.aspx

Seems to start of with using the term revert - but then they have to use the restore command so they start to talk about restore.

In my view this shouldnt really be termed a restore as alone the snapshot cannot be used to restore the database (this is correct isnt it?), however if you have a database and a snapshot you can revert the database to the snapshot.

I think this makes sense this way round - only muddied by the fact that you still have to run the restore command.

Obviously what you dont want is some newbie doing snapshots thinking they can restore a snapshot on failure.

I'm not agree with the "right" answer. I can revert to any undamaged snapshot:

Step 1: delete all other snapshot
Step 2: revert to the selected

The answer would be right only with the condition: "without removing the snapshots"

Good question. Interesting point made by some that you can, if you delete the other snapshots.
