Key:
DATABASE - The target database.
FROM backup_device - The backup device from which to restore.
CHECKSUM - verify all backup checksums (or fail)
NO_CHECKSUM - Disable validation of checksums
FILE - The backup set to be restored (text string)
KEEP_REPLICATION - Retain replication settings for log shipping. Recover a warm standby.
MEDIANAME - Specify the name for the media, check for a matching media name on the backup volume.
MOVE - The data or log file (logical name) should be moved by restoring it to the file location specified.
RECOVERY- After the restore, roll back any uncommitted transactions.
NORECOVERY- Do not roll back any uncommitted transactions. Use if applying another tx log later.
STANDBY - Specify a standby (undo) file that allows the recovery to be undone, for offline restore only.
REPLACE - Overwrite any existing database with the same name.
RESTART - Restart a restore operation that has been interrupted.
RESTRICTED_USER - Restrict access to the newly restored db to the db_owner, dbcreator, or sysadmin roles.
UNLOAD - Automatically rewind and unload the backup tape when the backup is finished.
STATS - Display a message each time n percentage completes.
STOPATMARK - Recover to a marked transaction or log sequence number
STOPBEFOREMARK - Recover to a marked transaction or log sequence number

FILE - Logical filename in backup (number)
FILEGROUP - Logical filegroup
PAGE - Page restore (full recovery only)
