Error 507 No valid backup sets found from provided folder

Postby aaditya2000 » Fri May 04, 2012 7:02 pm

I am getting error when my restore jobs fails. my restore database name is same as backup database name.

I am restoring from shared location. but when i copy that backup file to local disk. restore works, but fails with that error when i restore from shared location.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

When restoring from a network share, you need to ensure that the SQL Backup Agent service startup account has rights to access that network share.

You can check if that account has read/write/delete rights by running the following:

Code: Select all
EXEC master..sqbutility 999, 'RWE', '<your network share path>

What is the returned result?
