I would like to know what happens if I restore one of my databases to the same server but using the options..

Restore SQL database as (filename)

Use custom path for SQL restore log files

Make SQL database operational


My Destination is the same server as the original backup- but in red lettering is says "replacing corresponding database"


I want to use the same server, as it has the correct SQL version installed and has space to restore a database to

However, I don't want to overwrite the existing database, just put another copy on the server so I can restore a couple of records.


I really need to know what will happen as I don't want to make a mess of things.


Thanks everyone
