    "RESTORE detected an error on page (44262:41495)" - what's hard to understand? – Mitch Wheat Sep 14 '13 at 6:37

    It means that you haven't tested your backup and restore strategy recently. – ta.speot.is Sep 14 '13 at 6:49

Try running RESTORE VERIFYONLY and see if you get more information about the failure.

You could also try running RESTORE with CONTINUE_AFTER_ERROR and then run DBCC CHECKDB:

RESTORE DATABASE database_name 

(i.e. running as TSQL rather than through SMO)


Specifying WITH CONTINUE_AFTER_ERROR in a RESTORE statement attempts to restore the database. However, there are many kinds of corruption that prevent recovering a database. We strongly recommend that you reserve using the CONTINUE_AFTER_ERROR option until you have exhausted all alternatives.

All backup strategies should include regular DBCC CHECKDB runs.

Also NOTE: You do not have a backup unless you periodically successfully test restores.
