Hi!

I am having issues restoring a SQL Server 2000 database to a SQL Server 2005 instance. My ultimate goal is to move over to SQL Server 2005. These are the issues I have so far with the restoration process:

- When selecting the file to restore the 'Restore database' form does not allow me to drill down past one folder level (ie. c:/myfiles vs c:/myfiles/cantgethere). Is this part of the mapped drive issue you were speaking about?

- I am getting an error "The Database Engine service could not resolve the specified file location. Either the location does not exist, or the current login does not have access to it." Perhaps this is part of the mapped drive issue as well?

The database that I am trying to restore is very large and I do not have enough space to copy the backup locally to perform the restoration. Do you know of a workaround?

I also have an issue where I am unable to install the 2005 samples. When I try to install them the system feels they are already installed. Looks like I hit a number of issues you brought out in your article.

Thanks for the good info!
