how 2 restore a table from the database snapshot?

Hi All,
I have a database n I dropped a table in that.
I have a old snapshot available before this drop table happened.
How to just restore that table from the snapshot instead of resorting the entire database from the full backup I have?

In SQL Server Management Studio browse the Database Snapshot, right click on the table you want to recover and select

Script Table As > Create To > File

Save the script file with a meaningful name.

You now have a t-sql script to recreate your dropped table.

Run the create table script against your live database to recreate your dropped table.

Then import the data from the snapshot into the recreated table using the SQL above i.e.

INSERT INTO [Database].[Schema].[table]
 SELECT * from [snapshot_Database].[Schema].[table]

Hi vdr,
Thanks for the comment,
U mean create a new database with the snapshot I have n copy table from that database?
Is there a way to copy table directly from that snapshot I have instead of restoring it on a new database n copying from that database?

My bad ..Ignore the previous post..

you can directly do an insert Like below

INSERT INTO [Database].[Schema].[table]
 SELECT * from [snapshot_Database].[Schema].[table]
