We have a small business server 2003.  We use companyweb to store documents such as excel and word.  A user deleted an excel spreadsheet and we need to recover it.  We have daily backup running.  

I have a spare machine that I restored the entire backup too.  It boots fine and all looks the same except that this machine has one nic and our live server has two nic's.  One for internet and one for local network.

When I try to access the companyweb on the machine I rstored the backup to, I get the error Cannot connect to the configuration database.  Not sure what to do from here.  

Is there an easier way to restore the spreadsheet from the backup?

The restore to spare server did not work because the server hard drive partitions were not identical to original server.  I will change the partitiions and try again.
