I'll try that. It'll take probably 30 min. to copy over.

I think I figured it out. When I right click on the database I want to restore over, select tasks - restore, SQL is unable to find the .bak file. However, when I right click on 'Databases', select 'restore database...", select the database name, then try to locate the file, it sees it!!!

I am having the same issue.
Some .bak files are not visible to Restore/Select file. (2008 R2)
Pasting the path and file name works though.

Hi,
I had the same problem and it solved by moving the backup file to the SQL default backup location. This folder didn't have permission and got it when I accessed it for the first time.
Hope it will work for you as well.
Regards.

The dumbness isn't in the question, but in Microsoft's permissions design.

Sometimes it happens that when you select a particular Backup File to Restore, you need to Select File Type as All Files in the Drop Down. I hope that works well.

With Thanks,
Satnam

Under SSMS> Server Objects, >
there is a Backup Devices folder. Here you can easily create a .bak file and easily find it later as well through here. You can point the backup device to another directory if you wish.

Initially this just creates a pointer. Then when you actually do a backup you point to this device instead of using the file system. Always test restores as well, just something to remember.
