Backup and restore db from SQL 2012 to SQL 2008

Postby Philn » Thu Apr 10, 2014 9:08 pm

Hi,
Can RedGate Backup restore a SQL 2012 Backup db onto SQL 2008?
We have a need of set up transactional replication via backup and restore for SQL 2012 database to SQL 2008 and currently MS backup does not support restore db onto lower version of SQL.
Thanks
