stopat question

I'm doing a point in time restore using version 4.1. I'm using the command line. I have the stopat = 12:05pm but there are records in the database with a timestamp of 12:14pm. How is this possible?

    Could you pls check the script on the Restore Wizard, to see if it includes the STOPAT option, and if the datetime format is something that SQL Server would recognise?

    Here is the full script I am running:


    master..sqlbackup 'sql "restore database [hchb_hha_20060529rd] from disk =
    ''\\lounas01\sqlbackups\hchb_hha\HCHB_HHA_PSQL0305_(local)_FULL_20060527_00.sqb'' with NOrecovery,
    move ''HCHB_TSCH_Data'' to ''G:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL\Data\hchb_hha20060529rd2.mdf'',
    move ''HCHB_TSCH_log'' to ''h:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL\Data\hchb_hha20060529rdlog2.ldf''"'



    master..sqlbackup 'sql "restore database hchb_hha_20060529rd from disk =

    I see nothing wrong with your script.

    Could you pls try converting the last log file to the native backup format, then try restoring with the same STOPAT value? Do you get the expected results there?
