Restoring A Striped Backup

Steve Jones shows us how to restore a backup striped across multiple files:

Each of these is part of a striped backup, a piece of a backup file. To restore the backup, I need all the files to reassemble the backup. This is fairly simple, but you should be aware of how this works and how to perform a restore.

In my case, you can see I have 7 files for each database. They are the same name with an _0x at the end, with x being the number of the file.

Take Steve’s advice and script out the restore process. ¬†That way you know how to do it next time, can start building¬†automation scripts, and can make your life easier.
