SharePoint restore with stsadm -Access to the path XXXXX is denied

I am trying to do a restore and keep getting the error:
I am
I am trying to restore our site to a subsite of our site.
site https://mysite.com
restore site https://mysite.com/restore
when I do i get the following error

SharePoint restore with stsadm -Access to the path XXXXX is denied

The command I use is:
c:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\BIN>stsadm -o restore -url https://mysite.com/restore -filename E:\SharePointBackup\spbr0000 -Overwrite

I can run the backup as myself and it will create the folder

c:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\BIN>stsadm -o backup -directory "E:\SharePointBackup" -backupmethod full

E:\SharePointBackup\spbr000

I have verified that all the *Files are not Read-Only
I have gone into Central Administration > Application Management > Site collectin administrators> and added myself as the secondary site colleciton administrator.

I am running this on the server that the site is on

Is this Server 03 or Server 08?

If its 08, please open a powershell prompt, type the following:

start-process powershell -verb runas

Open in new window


and then attempt your STSADM command again.


If it is 03, I guess my next attempt would be somthing like a content deployment job from your test farm to prod

Have you created, in Central Admin, an Explicit Inclusion Managed Path for this specific site collection?
I just realized that you are trying to backup / restore on the same farm - since, with STSADM, you can only backup a Site Collection, and you cannot create a Site Collection within another Site Collection (vs a subsite / subweb), you will need to specifically specify a separate location for the new site collection to be created
