This is telling you that you are trying to restore a database and the file(s) are already in use by another database.  So you need to use the MOVE option to move them to another filename.

Strangely enough I read the error message a few times, and for once I was able to determine what the problem was.  Here was the key to the error message:  File ‘C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL10_50.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQL\DATA\ SomeNewDB.mdf’ is claimed by ‘SomeNewDB_UserData’(3) and ‘SomeNewDB_Primary’(1).

So what I did was script out the restore and discovered that I was trying to use the .mdf file twice.

RESTORE DATABASE [SomeNewDB]

FROM DISK = N’C:\SQLBackup\SomeNewDB.bak’

WITH FILE = 1,

MOVE N’SomeNewDB_Primary’

TO N’C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL10_50.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQL\Data\SomeNewDB.mdf’,

MOVE N’SomeNewDB_UserData’

TO N’C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL10_50.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQL\Data\SomeNewDB.mdf’,

MOVE N’SomeNewDB_Log’

TO N’C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL10_50.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQL\Data\SomeNewDB_1.ldf’,

NOUNLOAD, REPLACE, STATS = 10

GO

 

So I changed the second file to .ndf and ran the script and it seemed to work.

RESTORE DATABASE [SomeNewDB]

FROM DISK = N’C:\SQLBackup\SomeNewDB.bak’

WITH FILE = 1,

MOVE N’SomeNewDB_Primary’

TO N’C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL10_50.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQL\Data\SomeNewDB.mdf’,

MOVE N’SomeNewDB_UserData’

TO N’C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL10_50.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQL\Data\SomeNewDB.ndf’,

MOVE N’SomeNewDB_Log’

TO N’C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL10_50.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQL\Data\SomeNewDB_1.ldf’,

NOUNLOAD, REPLACE, STATS = 10

GO

So if you ever run into that problem make sure your not trying to reference the .mdf file twice inside your restore statement.

Well, if you click the script button, you will see something like

RESTORE DATABASE databasename FROM DISK='c:\database.bak' WITH REPLACE

What the message is telling you is to use this type of command.

RESTORE DATABASE [ANDY_AYLAS-PC]
FROM DISK='c:\database.bak'
WITH MOVE 'TRAMITE_Datos' TO 'c:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL10_50.MSSQL\DATA\STD_INABIF_ANDY.mdf',
MOVE 'TRAMITE_USER' TO 'c:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL10_50.MSSQL\DATA\STD_INABIF_ANDY_2.ndf',
MOVE 'TRAMITE_Registro' TO 'c:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL10_50.MSSQL\DATA\STD_INABIF_ANDY_Log.ldf',
REPLACE
