MyTime = DATEADD(s, UnixTime, '1970-01-01 00:00:00')

SELECT dateadd(s, ,<YOUR DATE TIME IN UNIX>, '19700101')
eg.
SELECT dateadd(s, 1113211532, '19700101')

returns; 2005-04-11 09:25:32.000

I was using the below SQL to get the last 30 days data .. How can i use the same to get the last 30days data which has uNIX timestamp

SELECT ID Where Date >= DATEADD(D,DATEDIFF(DAY, 0 ,GETDATE())-30, 0)
and Date < DATEADD(D,DATEDIFF(DAY, 0 ,GETDATE()), 0)

just reverse it:

DATEDIFF(s, '1970-01-01 00:00:00', UnixTime)

Or the other way around...

SELECT *
FROM <YOUR TABLE>
WHERE
 <YOUR TABLE COLUMN IN UNIX FORMAT> >= DATEDIFF(s, '19700101', Dateadd(dd, -30,GETDATE()))
