There is a database on a server of which I would like a copy on my local machine for testing purposes, so I created a backup in the default disk location (
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL11.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQL\Backup). The backup dialog says it completes successfully, but when I go to restore the .bak, it's not visible to the file selection dialog (significant file names blurred, obviously).
There are other viable backups in the same location, but the one I supposedly created does not appear. When attempting to recreate the backup, the one I created appears as a selectable option, while the others in the folder do not.
What is the issue here? I don't think it's a permissions problem because I'm able to access the other backups in the same folder.
Edit: The backup was on the server which has a similar file structure to my machine. I remoted in to the server and copied the file. Thanks for the help!
