Hi All,

How are you doing with error messages like this one:

Msg 3242, Level 16, State 2, Line 1
The file on device 'D:\Backups\database.bak' is not a valid Microsoft Tape Format backup set.
Msg 3013, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
RESTORE DATABASE is terminating abnormally.

I got a backup from a client but cannot restore it.
I tried with CONTINUE_AFTER_ERROR as well, but same.

Actually
RESTORE VERIFYONLY FROM DISK = N'D:\Backups\database.bak'

gives out the same error.

w00t That doesn't look good.
Your backup file is definetly not ok. Could it be that the backup was taken on a different version of SQL Server than your own server?

Both instances (the client and my) are on sql server 2008 r2, but I'm not sure about the versions on them.
I think their version is later than mine, ... will try to restore on sql server 2012 or 2008r2 upgraded as their version.

Thank you
