I am trying to restore from a backup and getting the following error
Msg 3201, Level 16, State 2, Line 1
Cannot open backup device 'Z:\FULL_BACKUP.bak'. Operating system error 3(failed to retrieve text for this error. Reason: 15105).
Msg 3013, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
RESTORE DATABASE is terminating abnormally.
The code that I used in SQL Server is as follows (I also tried using the dialog screens and got the same result)
RESTORE DATABASE DEX FROM DISK = 'Z:\FULL_BACKUP.bak' WITH MOVE 'Decri' TO 'E:\Test\DEX.mdf', MOVE 'Decri_log' TO 'E:\Test\DEX.LDF'
It may be worth noting that the "FULL_BACKUP" is created by the same SQL server, without any issues (so I assume that the server has permissions).
Drive Z is a network path, for which there is 'full access' to all domain users.
The full backup is 200Gb
Drive E (local) has 500Gb free space
Any help would be appreciated.
