Yes. i saw that

CAn you please let me know what partition we need to restore?

So, for the schema recovery. This is if we need to Recover entire forest if schema update will cause issues.
To revert back schema and forest to where it was before the 2012 forest update, can we just restore the schema partition only or need to restore all partitions? Please advise

See options below in the test lab

What is the reason why would we restore 2,3, and 4 but not 1 and 5?
