Restore Gene History

The ‘Restore Generator’ stored procedure and PowerShell scripts were created in 2012 then an article was published by SQL Server Central. Subsequently a lot of contributions were made to improve it notably in Version 4 by Luke to manage backup forking logic, Version 5 additions by Mick to support Azure URL backup file locations and compatibility with the Ole Hallengren solution. Version 6 includes support for multiple standby server restores running concurrently with help from Kiran (PowerShell script updates), all the new features have been suggested functional improvements.
