SQL Server 2005 Express
Windows XP SP2

I was restoring a backup from a file. When the file explorer is launched, somehow I could not browse to the ..\Desktop\Backup directory where I had saved the backup.

I also tried copying the file to the root folder, however an error message was displayed indicating that either the file was not found or that insufficient security privileges were available.

I had to set rights to 'Everyone' so that SQL Server Mgmt studio was able to read the backups, although the user I was logged in (Adminstrator) had rights on the folder.

move the backupfolder to your c-drive to avoid this kind of hassle !

So it will be able to use c:\backup\...

Also keep in mind it has to be able to write the database files to an available location (for the sqlserver service).
