HI All,

Can we restore/recover individual Table in Microsoft SQL Server. As far as i know it is not possible Out of the box. I dont want to use any third party due to cost issue.

Is there any work around to achieve it. Thanks.

Regards,
Inder

Hi Inder,

The short answer is no, you cannot natively restore a single table. Without a third-party tool your best bet is probably to restore the database somewhere else and copy the table you need back to your desired destination.

RedGate has a wicked awesome tool called Virtual Restore. I can't remember the limitations but they do offer a ...wait for it...

trial. If cost is an issue and the database isn't massive, give it a whirl. Then you can say "wicked awesome" too.

If the database is massive and the free VR trial doesn't touch it, I'd suggest just buying a copy. We're talking a couple hundred bucks so the bank won't get broken. Heck, your company's executives probably spent more than that on wine and cheese at their last meeting.

Ah yes, but cheese and wine is far more important....! w00t

Red-Gate VR is awesome and could be a big win here. ApexSQL also has a Recover tool that can re-constitute tables, DML actions and recoveries, etc, buy using database/log files and/or backups.

The ability to recover tables is in my opinion one of SQL Servers weakest Points. For us that was so critical for a particular application that we opted for Oracle instead! Perhaps something that Microsoft should think about as an improvement to the product?

I may be wrong but I think [not] putting this functionality in the product encourages third party vendors to "partner" with MS to provide add-on products, spreading the wealth...

I just want to get my arms around this "we chose Oracle over SQL Server because we could recover a single table in Oracle" thing. The only way I know of to recover a single table from an Oracle backup is to restore the whole backup somewhere and then extract the data and structure from the table.

Let me guess: you do an export of the entire Oracle database to be able to restore a single table.

Ahhh.....the Beauty of Oracle!

Restoring a table can of course be done by extracting the table from a dump but easier is to ENABLE_ROW_MOVEMENT on the table in question.

You can then FLASHBACK TABLE until time or SCN (if you need it). If someone performs a DROP TABLE it is possible to recover it from the $RECYCLEBIN as long as the clever Person doesn't DROP with PURGE!

It obviously wasn't the only reason we chose it but it was certainly a key factor.
