Hello Tech Gurus,

I took a backup of my database in SQL EXPRESS( using the backup option when when right click on the database)  and now i trying to restore this database in proper SQL SERVER( restore option we get when you right click on the database folder) and it won't. It says " Restore failed for "SERVER_NAME" Microsoft.Sql.Server.smo"
Restore failed for Server 'PURPLESERV'.  (Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo)

Following is the detailed error message

System.Data.SqlClient.SqlError: The backup set holds a backup of a database other than the existing 'StandardTimeSQL' database. (Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo)

------------------------------
Program Location:

   at Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.Restore.SqlRestore(Server srv)

After restoring the database into SQL server, I tried creating the  same users again( that use to be in the SQL EXPRESS ) but it says that user already exsit but i don't have users listed in the login list.
Please see the following error

Server Name: SEVER_NAME
Error Number: 15023
Severity: 16
State: 1
Line Number: 1

User, group, or role 'MY_NAME' already exists in the current database. (.Net SqlClient Data Provider)
