sql server RESTORE can only restore full databases, or filegroups, but not single tables.

so, you would need to restore the full database (under another name), and continue from there. you can then select the data from there, and recreate/update/insert your original table as needed.

ok I see.
So I can restore the DB to the same SQL Server but with another name ?

yes. in the RESTORE statement you specify the name you want to have, which can be a completely different name from what the db the backup was taken from.
