First off thanks for reading, I am new to SQL (SQL Server 2000). Unfortunatley I just had the array my Data was on and my tape backup get toasted, I was able to do some data recovery on the remaining drives and pull off about 15 different .bak files for the database I need to restore. Unfortunatley I keep getting errors like "Microsoft SQL_DMO "ODBC SQLState: 4200" "AN internal inconsistancy error has occurred. Contact technical support for assistance. Restore Database is Terminating abnormally." Anyone have any suggetions on how to get around this error or how to correctly restore a database from a .BAK file.
