RESTORE an Old Filegroup into an UpTodate Database

Greetings Group Members,

I am going to implement a strategy for archiving and restoring old
Part of my data has been stored in date partitioned files and
filegroups. So the archive is going to backup older than six months
filegroups into the tape and removes them from the production database.
The restore strategy is going to work as this: user would be able to
ask for restoring old filegroups. Every time there is a restore
request, first I am going to restore the current PRIMARY filegroup of
production database into another instance of SQL Server and then
restore the requested filegroup to the new SQL Server as well.
My question is if this restore strategy is possible to be done? I mean
is that possible to restore an old filegroup and a current PRIMARY
fileroup and keep the consistency and send queries against them?

I've been having some issues so forgive me if this double-posts. Because I have some large but static Filegroups within a database I prefer to backup my filegroups instead of everything at once.

Hello All I am currently doing a project on MS SQL Server 2005 where I am in need of table level backup/restore. I know about FILEGROUP. But in our project using FILEGROUP is not feasible. As far as I know MS SQL Server 2005 does not support Table level restore directly. Moreover relational integrity is also matter. Is there any clever trick or 3rd party free software to do table level restore/backup? Please Help.
