lets say you have a full and dif backup file that was created from a sql 2008 box. You try and restore it to a 2012 sql box.
I assume it should work pretty well..lol
i heard that you might have problems because the master db associated with that db on the 2008 box will be different on the 2012 box obviously.
why is this?
also i heard if you are doing a full server recovery that has the multiple databases. that you need to have a box to recovery the databases that have the exact same sql version number.
