Following HDD failure I need to restore C:  &  D:  on a desktop.  I have a base backup & three incrementals as follows:

What is the proper restore order?

RO-PC.sv2i

Ro-PC_SYSTEM0-1_Drive015_i003.iv2i

Ro-PC_SYSTEM0-1_Drive015_i002.iv2i

Ro-PC_SYSTEM0-1_Drive015_i001.iv2i

Ro-PC_SYSTEM0-1_Drive015.v2i

Ro-PC_D_Drive015_i003.iv2i

Ro-PC_D_Drive015_i002.iv2i

Ro-PC_D_Drive015_i001.iv2i

Ro-PC_D_Drive015.v2i

Ro-PC_C_Drive015_i003.iv2i

Ro-PC_C_Drive015_i002.iv2i

Ro-PC_C_Drive015_i001.iv2i

Ro-PC_C_Drive015.v2i

If you select the *.sv2i file for the restore, SSR will automaticall apply the correct order.

Since  the v2i file is the base backup, so this will be applied first. After that the iv2i, the incremental backups, will be applied in ascending order so first *_i001, *_i002 second and so on.
