    Unanswered: "Restore Database" when unable to "Connect"?

    Hey

    Quick question for the experts here! Wink

    We have the issue of wanting to restore an MSSQL database (.BAK) but are unable to "Connect" to the existing database; but we are able to "Start" the database currently.

    When we are unable to perform a "Connect", then under "All Tasks" you don't get the option to "Restore Database"

    I am hoping there is a way around this and still a possibility of doing a restore without having to do an entire install of MSSQL again and then a restore?

    Thanks!

    When you say you are unable to "connect" do you mean with the application, or with the SQL Server tools?

    Also, when you say "start the database" do you mean the MSSQLServer service?

    Sorry for the questions, I just want to make sure we are talking the same language.

    Please disregard, seems that there was a registration issue with admin rights, so I have since connected as Administrator and am abale to do a "Restore Database" again.

    Thanks a lot
