comment Restore database excluding FILESTREAM data
You're absolutely right, 12 gig isn't really that much. It was more of a nice-to-have feature than a need-to-have. But if it is as you say, that what I want to do isn't possible, you can post that as an answer so I can accept it. No need to spend any more time on the issue :-)

comment Restore database excluding FILESTREAM data
@MarkStorey-Smith: the database is mainly accessed using regular queries, through NHibernate (both from an ASP.NET web application and a Windows forms application). How is that relevant?

comment Restore database excluding FILESTREAM data
@jgardner04: that doesn't seem to work. The database ends up in an inconsistent state if I first do a full restore, followed by a restore of the backup containing only the Primary file group (Error message: "The database cannot be recovered because the log was not restored (...) the database could not be brought online because one or more RESTORE steps are needed").
