About restoring Exchange data from snapshot

loss restores are possible. Roll-forward, no-loss restores cannot
Individual database restores cannot be performed.
The job will fail.
The following options are not applicable to

soft-recovery process when restored databases are mounted.
Restore all transaction logs; do not delete
existing transaction logs (no loss restore)
Restore all transaction logs until point-in-time;
skip transaction logs after this time
Purge existing data and restore only the databases
and transaction logs from the backup sets

Data cannot be restored from a snapshot backup to a
