Comments posted to this topic are about the item DB Recovery

It's better to fail while trying, rather than fail without trying!!!

Since the question states "...using the log backups", and there can't be any in Simple mode, my reasoning was that the correct answer has to be "none of the above". Answering "No" implies that there are log backups, but that you can't recover from them.

I know that this is arguing semantics a bit, but what's the point of a none of the above if it's meaningless?

Well, if there is a log backup only from the point after the 1000 records are updated/inserted then the answer can ONLY be no, because you couldn't restore from the only log file you have.

But yeah, that choice and the way the question was phrased leaves a bit to be desired.

No, there isn't a log backup, only a log.

as I would say:

" ... Can I recover using the log backups? "

You do not have any log backups!

If so - it implies that you have a fresh full backup after changing the recovery mode and than the correct answer was yes.

but this make no sense: answer c) "none of the above" should be correct - You do not have any log backups! w00t

I agree with the C. There is no mention of a log backup ever being performed, therefore a restore using log backups does not fall within the scope of yes or no.

Following the earlier discussion, I too went for (C) since there is no mention of when any log backups were done, so you don't know if there are any or how successfull they wer, hence cannot answer either yes or no.
