I started restoring from backup using (WITH REPLACE, RESTORE WITH RECOVERY) and realized that it was a mistake, so I stopped restoring.

Now this db is unavailable and has a 'Restoring' status.

  • Can I expect full rollback?
  • What should I do?

No there is no rollback. You will need to restore from the most recent backup that you have.
