I accidentally restored a SQL Server 2008 database with a wrong backup. Is there any way to undo this and restore to previous version?

No. You've replaced what's there with your restore. You would have to treat this the same as someone dropping your database - go to the most recent full database backup you have and then restore all subsequent log backups.

Sorry... you probably have that sick feeling right now. I feel bad for you.

  • it's on a windows 2008 server. any chances of retrieving a lost file?
