Restore failed for server 'servername',(Microsoft.sqlserver.smoextended)

You can't restore a database from higher version to lower version. This is a case that I saw before where a backup from SQL Server 2008 R2 was being restored in SQL Server 2008. The case looks like similar to yours. Please find the attached link
