• SQL Server 2005 Express

    Windows XP SP2

    I was restoring a backup from a file. When the file explorer is launched, somehow I could not browse to the ..\Desktop\Backup directory where I had saved the backup.

    I also tried copying the file to the root folder, however an error message was displayed indicating that either the file was not found or that insufficient security privileges were available.

    I had to set rights to 'Everyone' so that SQL Server Mgmt studio was able to read the backups, although the user I was logged in (Adminstrator) had rights on the folder.

  • move the backupfolder to your c-drive to avoid this kind of hassle !

    So it will be able to use c:\backup\...

    Also keep in mind it has to be able to write the database files to an available location (for the sqlserver service).
