You do not mention what you used for making the backup. If used, for example, MS backup most likely the backup will be such that you can only restore the lot - hardly helpful if you have later versions of files that would thus then be overwritten, losing valuable later work.
For sensible backups, get the free FBackup and take a little time to select the files you really want to be backed up - preferably on to an external USB hard drive. Even 2TB ones are now very inexpensive. Opt to have two backups, say to run at same time each day - if you do not have the computer running at that time, the backup will still kick-in when you start even if a lot later that day or next. Make on a FULL backup and other a MIRROR and without any encryption. That way you will be able to access even one individual file as and when required - even without restoring. Here is a link - just remove the blanks - I think this website may delete any full links. http:// www. fbackup.com/free-download.php

Recovery


Before starting anything, get some information. Do you know:
  • What the files are called?
  • Where the files should be located?
  • What backup media you have a backup of the files on?

If you know the answer to the third question, then you can skip ahead. If you know which files need to be restored, but you don't know which media you need to restore from, you can either browse for the file, or use the Search Catalogs feature.
To browse for the file:
  1. Click Restore
  2. Ensure that in the View by box, Resource is selected
  3. Expand the server and resource where the files are located
  4. Browse through the media, folders and files to find the files you want
  5. Select the files and folders you wish to restore
To restore the files:
  1. Ensure you have the files you wish to restore selected
  2. If you wish to restore using a specific device, click Devices and choose the appropriate device
  3. If you wish to restore the files to a different location, click File Redirection, click the Redirect file sets box and choose where you want to restore to. If some of the files you wish to restore may be in use, then it may be a good idea to redirect the file set, then copy the files to the correct location
  4. Click General. If you want to restore the files from the backup media, even if they have been updated, then select Restore over existing files
  5. Click Run Now
  6. If the correct media is not already in the drive, you will be prompted to insert it.

Hi...........


Well there is more than one or two answers 4 that.
you should first check if you are at simple recovery mode. If not (now this will sound strange) right click the database, click tasks/backup and make a LOG backup.
Now right click databases and click Restore Database.
You should choose a new database name (for restore practice) .
You will probably have your last backups at the bottom of the screen...if not click add and choose you latest data backup.
click the log backup and the data backup should be checked , too. on options tab make sure the database is left ready to use.
