Posted on 2013-11-27

I am using SQL Server 2012 and I am trying to restore a database. When I try to select a Device and click the Browse icon to Add a File Location, the file browsing window takes up to 5 minutes to appear.
Is there a fix for this or something that needs to be updated?

Please advise.

Thanks.

Hi,

Is the actual restore okay?

How full are the disks?

Restores are fine. 100gb used on 1TB of disk.

It's very likely because there's a lot of backup history in msdb.  You need to clean out the obsolete data, like so:

EXEC msdb.dbo.sp_delete_backuphistory 'YYYYMMDD' --<<--delete everything before this date


Btw, you should learn to do restores using the

RESTORE DATABASE

command, because it would allow you to pre-code and verify all the restore info before running.  And it lets you repeat a restore very easily and accurately.

The problem turned out to be firmware issues with the HP hardware. Once updated, the disk response improved.
