SharePoint 2010 Root Site Collection (overwrite) - restoration options?

May 5Hits:1
Advertisement

Totally embarrassing - a sub-site from our staging environment was imported targeting the production environment's root site collection instead of the sub-site. Needless to say, I have a big problem.

I can see the sub-sites, so I am assuming that I can (1) perform granular backups, (2) perform a full farm restoration, and (3) restore the newly created backups of the sub-sites. Does my logic make sense? I am trying my best not to perform a full config and content restoration to insure that no data was lost since the last backup.

Answers

how you trying to restore the sub-site into top level?
why you need to restore the subsite once you already have full farm restoration?
if you just need the Subsite restore than you dont need to perform the full farm restore

take a look on the following blog to understand the process: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/russmax/archive/2009/10/21/sharepoint-2010-granular-backup-restore-part-1.aspx
