comment Restore-SPSite time scale to restore?
I thought 37GB wasn't too bad considering some are over 100GB, still it took 3 hours. That is disappointing if there is no way to monitor it.

comment Backup via SharePoint or backup via SQL Server?
Yes it makes sense, very helpful for my understanding of exactly what I'll need to restore. With so many SQL databases for Content, Config, Search & Analytics as a part time SharePoint Admin / DBA its quite overwhelming when learning what is irreplaceable and what you can re-create with a clean install

comment Backup via SharePoint or backup via SQL Server?
Would you suggest doing only regular "standard" SQL backups & maintenance plans work, scraping our PowerShell SharePoint backup. Then complementing this with a Farm backup at longer intervals?

"It depends" is the most frustrating part of trying to learn how to administer a SharePoint system. Thanks for the links in the right direction.

Thanks for the MS guide, it looks like SharePoint needs a lot more care taken of its databases than I was aware. Could you possibly expand on point 2.
