Have a single Sharepoint webserver backed by a SQL 2005 server. The sharepoint server has a messed up document in a document library and I have a SQL database backup from the day before.
What are my options to get just that document back?
I'm assuming you're using SharePoint 2007. Here's a way to get a document out of the SQL database backup you have.
Are you sure you don't have versioning enabled on the document library or that it's not in the Site Collection Recycle Bin? That would save a lot of time.
