Restore Problem

MSSQL 2000 SP3A

I'm trying to restore a database with the following commands.

restore database Test
from disk = 'D:\backups\9pm .bak'
WITH RECOVERY,

move 'DEV_Data' to 'c:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL
Server\MSSQL\da ta\Test_Data.MD F',
move 'DEV_Log' to 'c:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL
Server\MSSQL\da ta\Test_log.LDF '

The database doesn't exist on the restore server destination.

The size of the bak file is 681 mb.

The restore process never finishes or at least I've canceled after 30
minutes.

I do see the mdf file being created at 811 mbs.

I also see a log file for the database being created, its 17gb. I have 30
gbs of disk space when I initiate the restore.

Is this normal?

17 GB of disk could take some time to initiate, so I would restart
the restore, and leave it running.

Once you are up, you should probably take action to shrink the
transaction log. Exactly how do to this, depends on your requirements
for up-to-the-point recovery.

When I am trying to use backup or restore from the EM, a dialog box never pops up, and the EM interface locks up. Has anyone else had problems like this? Looks like all other functions from EM are working fine. Thanks, Dave

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
