    Question

  • A vendor gave us this 5GB SQL backup and we are unable to restore.   I get above error from my SQL 2008 and SQL 2005 instances on differnet servers.  Vendor says it is a problem with our SQL instance.  I have latest updates on the 2008 box and am able to restore other database backups.   So what could I look for to solve this issue if vendor says it isnt on them.

    Regards
