We have a Sharepoint 2013 installation with SQL on the same server (we are a small facility and only have 20-25 people that will access this install throughout the day). We have been running backups using our Unitrends backup appliance however recently I discovered after someone had deleted a PDF file on our content management system site that simply restoring an individual PDF file using the Unitrends appliance is not possible.
I am wondering if I should just resort to using the backup and restore that is built-in to Sharepoint to a location on our network and then have that backed up on our Unitrends appliance? or if there is a better way to be doing this. I know information is stored on the SQL server for Sharepoint but I don't understand how best to be able to recover something (besides using the built-in "Recycle Bin")
