Can't Restore: got "The media set has 2 media families but only 1 are provided."

I have the ".bak" backup file that I made from a Restore.
This is just on my local machine and I never made "media families"
or anything and I only have that one ".bak" file.

Someone from the hosting company told me I should "detach" the database.
I did and now it disapeared from the listing and I can't restore it.

Is there anyway of getting this database back?  thanks
Using SQL Server 2005

Hi
I hope you fine
in this case your backup make two files when created, and you only have one of those files.
to search for another file,try to check .bak file with the same timestamp you get.
thanks
