I am currently using database ow1222
I want to restore a backup and call it ow1222b

RESTORE FILELISTONLY FROM DISK = 'd:\ow1222\ow1222aug16.bak'
d:\ow1222\ow.mdf
d:\ow1222\ow_log.ldf




RESTORE DATABASE ow1222b
   FROM DISK= 'd:\ow1222\ow1222aug16.bak'
   WITH MOVE 'ow' TO 'd:\ow1222\ow.mdf',
   MOVE 'ow_Log' TO 'd:\ow1222\ow_log.ldf'



Msg 1834, Level 16, State 1, Line 1

May be you should rename your existing database before restoring the new one with the same name.

RESTORE DATABASE ow1222b
   FROM DISK= 'd:\ow1222\ow1222aug16.bak'
   WITH MOVE 'ow' TO 'd:\ow1222\owb.mdf',
   MOVE 'ow_Log' TO 'd:\ow1222\owb_log.ldf'

You are trying to restore the database ow1222b but use the same filenames, you have to specify new filenames for the new database.  So above I have added a b to the end of the filename so owb.mdf and owb_log.ldf.

The statement above should allow you to restore the database to a new one.
