If you use this method, make sure that users are not entering or modifying data because you will have issues with transactions made to the old database after the backup was completed, but before the new database was restored.

As an update we went ahead with the detach/attach, as this is what the DB programmer suggested in the end for convenience.
I am still puzzled as to why people are against this method, well I suppose if the DB is in production it causes more room for error than a backup/restore. Since this DB is fairly new and not utilized this didn't pose a problem.

Thanks everyone for your help!
