Hello,

I am getting the following error:

Microsoft SQL-DMO (ODBC SQL STate: 42000)`

Modify file encountered operating system error 112(error not found) While attempting to expand the physical file.
Could not adjust the space allocation for the file 'Sales_log'
Restore Database is terminating normally

Any ideas as to the cause of this error,
thanks in advance.

Hello,

That was my first thought but it seems to have adequate space.

You can try shrinking your log file:

DBCC SHRINKFILE({ldf file name}, 1)
BACKUP LOG {database name} WITH TRUNCATE_ONLY
DBCC SHRINKFILE({ldf file name}, 1)

and then try restoring again
