I am trying to set up a sql server 2k backup system where I have a complete back-up every day and transaction log backups every hour.  When I try to create the transaction log backup I get an error indicating that "...is not part of a multiple family media set..."  

Any ideas?

Hi,
check the link below which deals with the above error.

" then just before clicking "OK" to start the restore, you can click on the little scrolly-looking icon at the top and generate a script that will do what you were about to do by clicking "OK". Generate that script to a new query window and run it... and let me see what that script is also.

I am 100% willing to keep attempting to help you, but in the interest of full disclosure, I must remindd you that I do not have a lot of experience with differential backups. And even LESS with 2005's version. If you'd like me to refer this back to the group to get someone with more pertinent experience, I would be glad to. It is up to you, no hurt feelings either way."

The key to this is that when you go to backup the TLog using the Wizard, you need to make sure that you remove the file in the listbox and add your own for the TLog so that it is it's own.
