Q

Restoring tables without a backup

I have some tables that were accidentally deleted, and there is no database backup. Is it possible to restore the tables without a backup, just using the transaction logs?
The only way to restore the deleted tables is by using a third party transaction log tool such as Log Explorer, SQL Log Rescue, Apex SQL Log or Log PI. The only caveat is that the database must have been in the full or bulk logged recovery mode, so the transactions are logged and still recoverable.
