Choosing a server backup can be straightforward if you have a very recent successful backup of the server and you know that the backup contains all of your critical data. Data or setting changes that were made since the last good backup will have to be recreated.
If you are restoring your server because of a virus, select a backup that you know occurred prior to receiving the virus. You may need to go back several days to select a backup that is clean.
If you are restoring your server because of bad configuration settings, select a backup that you know occurred prior to the configuration setting change that is causing the issue on the server.
