I restored a Full Backup from 12:30 AM this morning and I specified WITH NORECOVERY.

Then I attempted to restore a differential Backup that I made at 10:30 AM and I specified WITH RECOVERY.

However I get the following error as if I had specified recovery on the full backup:


Msg 3136, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
This differential backup cannot be restored because the database has not been restored to the correct earlier state.
Msg 3013, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
RESTORE DATABASE is terminating abnormally.


Any ideas would be greatly appreciated?

There was another full backup taken (without the copy_only option) sometime between the full that you took and the diff that you took.
