If you mean that the database goes away due to a media failure and you were unable to backup the log file, then you can only restore up to the last good log file backup, when ever that was.
That's exactly what I want to confirm.
I know Oracle has the concept of incomplete restore and point-in-time recovery by cancel, by time, etc, by using archive log. Which in that case, even if you didn't setup any maintenance plan for any scheduled backups, you can still use Oracle internal automatic archive log files to restore the database to point-in-time.
In SQL Server, it doesn't have the similar term?
