    At SQL Saturday 300 in KC, you said you have a script that creates the restore scripts for a backup that uses a weekly full, nightly differential, and transaction backups. I can’t seem to find it in the uploaded scripts, and I would very much like to use something I could trust, rather than trying to recreate it and introduce errors.
    Thanks.
