How about the restore functions?

Just like the backups, you can use the wizard or script. The restores worked fine. The coolest feature was the ability to restore all log backups in a folder with one command.

"Restore all log backups in a folder within one command" is really useful in real world, esp. when you have to do the "recovery to the point". I once implemented this function through a complex t-sql SP before, maybe I should share with people here about how I implement this just to save a few $'s to purchase the off-shelf package.

I am using log shipping to replicate one database. When log shipping breaks, I have a VBScript that creates my log restore script for me to get it caught up again.

Log shipping is fine, but more often than not, people do not have the budget to replicate a huge-sized db, which is not adding any economic value.
