Since the question only wanted to know whether the 10,000 rows would be included in the backup, I would concur that the explanation is correct. We do not need a complete database restore, we are just looking to see if we would have the 10,000 inserted records. True, some data would be lost with no log restore, but that was not what the question was after.
Is it possible I really understood the question??? 😉
