I know that if you have to drop a full-text enable database and restore it,
you will have to rebuild the full-text indexes. My question is, if you have
a database where the data has not changed since your last backup and you
restore over top of the existing database, is the full-text index's
I have recently restored a large full-text enabled database over top of an
existing one after an upgrade failed and the full-text appears to be intact.
I can run full-text searches. Does anyone know if there are any potential
issues? The table has about 28 million rows and the full-text rebuild would
take days so I am trying to avoid that.
