Restore multiple db's to new server with new file locations

By Steven Webster,

We're upgrading our SQL Server soon and the new server does not have the same disk layout as the old one. There's over 80 db's to move, so figured a script that would get the last backup file taken of the db and grab the logical file names from the sysfiles table on each of the db's would make the task easier and print the full restore statement for each db would be quicker than individual restores. It's not perfect, but it did the trick for me.

Regards
