    A Big confusion is there.

    F1 full backup

    T1 Log Backup

    D1 Differential Backup

    T2 Log Backup

    D2 Differential Backup

    T3 Log Backup

    F2 full backup

    T4 Log Backup

    D3 Differential Backup

    T5 Log Backup

    D4 Differential Backup

    T6 Log Backup

    Now If F2 is corrupt. To restore database, the sequence :

    F1, D4, T6

    or F1, D2, T3, T4, T5, T6

    I don't think F1, D3, T5, T6 works

    The first idea (F1, D4, T6) will not work. D4 is a differential for F2 and cannot be restored after F1.

    The second option (F1, D2, T3-T6) will work and is the correct restore sequence if F2 is corrupt.

    The sequence F1, D3, T5, T6 will not work for the same reason that F1, D4, T6 will not work - D3 is based off F2. But F2, D3, T5, T6 will work if D4 is corrupt.
