Hello, I want to restore an old backup from express 2008 to express 2008. Made a new database, now I get the message:
System.Data.SqlClient.SqlError: The backup set holds a backup of a database other than the existing 'vDis' database. (Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo)
I can't remember the structut of the tables and data. Is there any way to find out how to design the new database to accept the old one?
