Issue Transferring SQL Server DB to Another machine

I am pretty much a complete NUB to SQL Server.  Using SQL 2014 Developer edition.

I have a SQL Server Database 'JTSConversion' on one of the office machines and want to transfer an updated version to another office machine.  The other office machine already has an older version of this DB.

Using the SQL Backup I backed up the entire DB called 'JTSConversion' on Machine 1.

I zipped up the backup and put it on a USB drive.

I unzipped the backup on machine 2 and then used the SQL Restore to Restore the updated version of the DB to Machine 2.

I encountered the error message in the attached document and I'm not sure how to correct it or get around it.


Any ideas?

When you are performing your restore select "Overwrite the existing database (WITH REPLACE)" and "Close existing connections to destination database"

The latter may not be necessary if no one else is using the database but it doesn't hurt since you are just copying over the existing one anyway.
