Item-Level backup and recovery
My company has recently decided to adopt SharePoint as our document management platform and I'm part of a team that has been assigned for the backup/restore/disaster recovery aspect for the implementation.
I've been backing up the entire database and can recover that fine in simulated disaster scenarios, but I'm having trouble getting my head around more granular restores. The inability to recover single documents has really been a drag in our implementation schedule. I've found ways to manual re-upload the file but that loses all the original document versions and meta data :(
What are the best pratices for recovering individual subsites and documents? Can SharePoint do this out of box? Does anybody have any suggestions for 3rd party?
Any info is GREATLY appreciated!
