Is it possible to restore a 6.5 database to a 7.0? I backup the entire 6.5 database to a BAK file then tried to restore it to SQL 7.0 but it didn't work. SQL 7.0 states that the disk device is not a valid Microsoft Tape Format backup set.
We have an application that was developped long long time ago by a old team and I don't want to upgrade the server. I tried to build a second 6.5 server (new hardware) but I couldn't restore the database as SQL 6.5 states that the server is in single user mode. I don't know how to switch to multi users mode. The database I want to restore is not in DBO or single user mode.
