I have a full backup, I made a mistake with some data and made a transaction log backup so I could restore the db on another server and compare data.
Now, I made a mistake can called it something like "dbname 5:30pm.trn", which wasn't caught by SSMS, but created a file "dbname 5", because the colon caused an issue.
Once it was done I refreshed the directory and it was 0k in size.
It seems that just broke the restore chain entirely and no TL backups after that corrupt file would be of any use. Time to just do another full backup and start the chain fresh?
Any advice on what a more experienced DBA would do in this situation? Any way to recover the situation or is it just making the best of the situation at this point?
