Assembly: Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo (in microsoft.sqlserver.smo.dll)
With a Restore object you can:
Restore all or part of a database.
Restore backup images of transaction log records.
Verify the integrity of backup media.
Report the contents of backup media.
Monitor a restore operation, reporting status to the user.
Microsoft SQL Server can write a backup to one of four media types: disk, tape, named pipe, or a backup device. SQL Server supports backup striping. A striped backup is one directed to more than a single device. Striping is supported to a single media type only. That is, a backup can be written to two tape devices. Half of a backup cannot be written to a tape device and the other half to a disk.
At a minimum, supply values for a restore source when using a Restore object. Use one media type property to specify the restore operation source.
Setting other properties in the Restore object may be required by the restore operation desired.
This namespace, class, or member is supported only in version 2.0 of the Microsoft .NET Framework.
