Hi all,

I just create a backup syntax, and it's running well. But when I try to restore it again there's a message that the backup cannot be run because database is in use. Does any one can tell me how to disconnect or solving the problem..

execute the restore command from other database like master instead of the one you are trying to restore. You can restore the database if you access it.


use master
restore database . . . .

Time is always against us

If there are other processes - you can use the KILL command - although check with the users first
