Backing up and restoring Windows 2000 database with binary fields
I have a database backup that came from a Microsoft SQL Server 2000 install. I've restored it to a Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 machine and all the fields (there are about three in each row) that have binary data in them are all showing as NULLs. Is there some special way the backup has to be executed to include these? I just used the standard backup Task via SSMS. Or is the issue that I need to restore it a Microsoft SQL Server 2000 machine? I'm trying to avoid having to spin one up if I can avoid it...but if that's my only option here... Thanks in advance.
