A backup I am trying to restore has 1 mdf file and 85 ndf files.
The server I am trying to restore doesn't have enough space in the default location.

I can use the following to change the path. Do I have to use 85 move lines to create the script or is there way I can specify one place for all ndf files?

Thanks for your help!

restore database DB
from disk='D:\Folder\DBBACK_0917.bak' 
replace, recovery, stats=5, maxtransfersize=1048576
