--assume you have bacup like below on 4 files
BACKUP DATABASE [MyDB] TO  [MyDB_bak1],  [MyDB_bak2],  [MyDB_bak3],  [MyDB_bak4]  WITH  COPY_ONLY, NOFORMAT, INIT,  NAME = N'MyDB-Full Database Backup', SKIP, NOREWIND, NOUNLOAD,  STATS = 10


--restore database would be
RESTORE DATABASE MyDB FROM MyDB_bak1, MyDB_bak2, MyDB_bak3, MyDB_bak4 WITH NORECOVERY
