SQL Server - Restore database from multiple full backup files

Feb 29 2012 12:00AM by Paresh Prajapati   

As I know database restoration is a best practice on periodically to check and verify database backup copies and issues while restoration due to some stuffs. I have wrote for the database backups as how can we perform full database backup completely and split in to multiple files to reduce IO and time. As we have performed full database backups into split multiples files, Same way we will perform restoration from those complete and split multiple files.

First we will see to restore full database complete backup and tried for from multiple files.

#1. Using TSQL
Let us run the below script first and get the logical names for database data and log files
RESTORE FILELISTONLY FROM DISK = 'D:\DBBackups\ReportServer\ReportServer.bak'     
After collection and putting logical file names in below script , it will restore the database from complete backup.
RESTORE DATABASE ReportServerComplteCopy FROM 
DISK = 'D:\DBBackups\ReportServer\ReportServer.bak'
MOVE 'ReportServer' TO 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL11.MSSQLSERVER11\MSSQL\DATA\ReportServerComplteCopy.mdf',
MOVE 'ReportServer_log' TO 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL11.MSSQLSERVER11\MSSQL\DATA\ReportServerComplteCopy_log.ldf'
As above we can restore database from multiple files as following,
 DISK = 'D:\DBBackups\ReportServer\ReportServer_Split1.bak'
,DISK = 'D:\DBBackups\ReportServer\ReportServer_Split2.bak'
,DISK = 'D:\DBBackups\ReportServer\ReportServer_Split3.bak'
MOVE 'ReportServer' TO 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL11.MSSQLSERVER11\MSSQL\DATA\ReportServerSplitCopy.mdf',
MOVE 'ReportServer_log' TO 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL11.MSSQLSERVER11\MSSQL\DATA\ReportServerSplitCopy_log.ldf'

#2. From Management Studio. 
We can also perform restoration from SSMS by adding those multiple backups as per shot below.


 You can see over here after adding those files it will shown as single backup set. 


Hope this help you.
