Restoring documents on 2003

  Asked By: Marie    Date: Dec 02    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1027

Can anybody provide me with a link or information on the best /
fastest / easiest way to restore documents that an end user deleted?

Remember the enviroment is SharePoint 2003 on top of SharePoint
Services 2.0

This is an enterprise of 6000+ users. The architecture for our
SharePoint implementation is the following:

(2) Web Servers
(1) SQL Server
(1) Job/Index Server

Please also understand I work an environment of high security. I
have read only access to the DB, and limited admin ability on the
SharePoint Servers.

In the past we have restored the whole SharePoint infrastructure and
detached and attached the backup databases to recover the document.
Long process and have to get 2 other people involved.

I concur, to get the documents  back at this point, you will need to at
least restore the database. There is a script to pick a file from the
database at


If you follow this method you will only have to restore the databse,
not the entire sharepoint install.
