Hi experts,
SQL Server Version: 2008
I have a database in which the administartor made a backup copy of my database I need to restore it to my own server.
I tried to restore it but I get error:
The Database was backed up on a server running version  10.00.2531 (see attached file).

Seem that my version is incompatible.

Have you any idea How Can I restored my file or upgrade sql server?

1. Backup is not compatible from newer version to older.
2. You can use different options:
a. SSIS
b. Export / Import
c. DB copy
