WSS3 - Browse Content In Backup File?
Posted on 2012-04-06
Hey Experts, I've got a bit of conundrum here. A while back, as I was building out some of the sites in our WSS3 collection using SPD, I saved a file that had an error in it and resulted in one of the blogs not connecting posts to comments. Although I had been backing up the WSS3 collection regularly before and after developing in SPD, I managed to NOOB this up and performed a panicked restore from a few days prior to correct the error in my code after several failed attempts to correct it. Wouldn't you know it, something was written on the blog within that window that has now become a major internal issue. However, that post is gone, as it was overwritten by my restore. Thus, I would like to restore the previous backup to a different site in WSS3 to retrieve the post. Does anyone have a step-by-step method of doing this? Can I just create a new WSS3 blog and restore the data from the backup to that site? I don't see anything in Central Admin 3.0 other than global restore and I'm not familiar enough with stsadm to manually export, import data from one site to another...especially when the data to be exported is stuck in a backup file. Please help. Many thanks as always!
