I have a copy of the same database on two different servers (stage and production). I backup production to a share on stage. When I try to restore the backup from production to stage I get the following error: Error 3242: The File on device 'D:ackupackup_db.BAK' is not a valid Microsoft Tape Format backup set. RESTORE FILELIST is terminating abnormally Does anyone know what the problem is? I've searched the Internet all it says is the backup file is corrupt. So, I've backed up production directly to a drive on stage and still get the error when I try a restore. Thanks in advance!
