I am trying to restore a .BAK in SQL server but get the following error:
Msg 3241, Level 16, State 7, Line 1 The media family on device 'c:\glyn\JA.bak' is incorrectly formed. SQL Server cannot process this media family. Msg 3013, Level 16, State 1, Line 1 RESTORE DATABASE is terminating abnormally.
I have tried restoring using 2012, 2008 and even 2005 but nothing works, I have used the following query and through the
Tasks >> Back up but nothing works, here's my SQL:
RESTORE DATABASE JA FROM DISK='c:\glyn\JA.bak'
Does anyone have any suggestions? I've read that the bak could be corrupt, it was sent to my by another developer on DVD who is working on the project.
