I was under the impression you could do this however when I try when I select the backup file as the source I get an error dialog saying

"Specified cast is invalid. (SQLManagerUI)"

Am I missing something?

Try running the below code

RESTORE DATABASE [DBName] FROM  DISK = N'D:\backFileName.bak' 
WITH  FILE = 1,  MOVE N'DBName' TO N'C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL10.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQL\DATA\DBName_11.mdf',  
MOVE N'DBName_log' TO N'C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL10.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQL\DATA\DBName_11.ldf',  
PASSWORD = 'password'

Open in new window

it is the issue with the management studion , just save your resture script as script.sql

sqlcmd -E -S .\SQLEXPRESS -i script.sql -o logreport.log

Another backup worked ok so I guess it must have been some sort of corruption
