Hi Experts,
I'm creating a script to drop a database and restore with the latest diff file, but I'm having difficulty with the diff. I can manage to drop and restore the database with the full backup. See below at the code.

USE master
--GO
--ALTER DATABASE Live1 SET SINGLE_USER WITH ROLLBACK IMMEDIATE;
--DROP DATABASE Live1;
--RESTORE DATABASE Live1 FROM DISK='C:\Users\test\Desktop\Full Database.bak'  
--WITH NORECOVERY
--MOVE 'MDF' TO 'C:\testdata\Test.mdf',
--MOVE 'Log' TO 'C:\testdata\Test_log.ldf',
--MOVE 'FullText' TO 'C:\testdata\Test_log.ndf'
GO
--RESTORE DATABASE Live1 FROM DISK='C:\Users\test\Desktop\DIFF.bak'
--WITH RECOVERY
--MOVE 'Data' TO 'C:\testdata\Test.mdf',
--MOVE 'Log' TO 'C:\testdata\Test_log.ldf',
--MOVE 'FullText' TO 'C:\testdata\Test_log.ndf'

Thanks,
J

Just a guess, based on reading MS website on differential restores, but I don't believe you need the MOVE statements. However, are you receiving an error? If so, what is it?

Hi Shaun,

I need the move statements as I'm restoring them on a different server.

As stated by Shaun Kline, you don't need the MOVE statements for the Diff as you are restoring to an existing database. The MOVE statements in the database restore are what will physically relocate the files.

What is the problem you are currently having?

When I place the norecovery option it errors on the Move.
Incorrect syntax near 'MOVE'

You need a comma after NORECOVERY. Each WITH clause needs to be comma separated.
