Restore from Network Drive.

Is it possible to Restore a DataBase from a Backup file located on the Network. Thanks.
Yes as long as the SQL Server service account and the login used has the required privileges to access that file.
Refer to the Books online on RESTORE topic for more information. Satya SKJ
