I want to restore to a point in time from a database that is already attached. When I try to do this using SMSS I cannot find the database I want in the dropdown list, but oddly it has a couple databases in the list that have been deleted.
I tried closing/reopening SMSS in hopes that it would refresh but no such luck.
Anyone know why the database is not showing up in the "From database:" drop down list?
If I try to restore a backup to a point in time then no backup sets appear for me to select. However, if I restore the backup to the most recent point in time and then restore the transaction log then I'm able to select a point in time when restoring the transaction log. But then when I query the database I find that it's still restored to the most recent point in time from the database backup rather than the time I selected for the transaction log.
How do I restore to a point in time? The backups are using the full backup model, but I'm not sure if I should be doing anything else as part of the backup to be able to restore to a point in time. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
