Backup and Restore on SQL Server

thanks to moonguy on MSDN he saved me many hours of work.

When you try to backup, SQL Server 2005 shows the default backup path i.e. c:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.1\MSSQL\Backup\ . This directory default has SQL user rights. Go to Backup directory and check the user name. Its very big name and I have not checked how SQL server adds it in allowed users list. You can do 2 things:

1. Let the Server take backup on default directory and copy the file in your desired folder. I did that.

2. Give same kind of permissions to your desired folder as Backup directory has.

Hope it solves the issue.
