Hi Friends,
Just wondering how do we uncompress the backup taken with "WITH COMPRESSION " option in SQL Server 2008
Also how do we restore the compressed full backup to the database.

Thanks in advance

noneed to uncompress.

You can restore a DB backup as normal.
ex:
restore database dba from disk='xxxxxxxxx'

Why do you want to umcompress?

Restore is done as usual. No need to do anything special.

Note: compresses backup can be taken only in EE or higher, but you can restore it in any edition.

Compressed backup file is a OS physical file which is restore normally like any backup file while restoring database, there is no such a thing like uncompress backup file.

Hi,

I have one point to ask. I have Backup compression enabled in my SQL Server. Can I restore any uncompressed Normal Backup. For the shake of information the Server is using STandard version of SQL Server 2008 R2 with SP2.

Please advise.

Thanks,
Arindam.

Yes, backups compressed or not can be restored to any edition of SQL, but only to an equal or higher version of the original server level.
