I'm told by my IT vendor that in order to get a backup of a file that I stored 10 years ago on Sharepoint 2003, they'd need to create a new environment to restore the entire Sharepoint.
I suspect that it's possible to restore documents separately from restoring the entire share point instance, but I'm not sure if that's entirely accurate.
I'm wondering what anyone's best guess would be for how to go about retrieving files without having to restore the entire instance, which is what my IT vendor is suggesting. I'd like to propose a solution that may require less effort, and am struggling to find an answer.
Any comments or questions I should pose would be welcome!
