Error -102 when trying to restore SQL server database backup

Recommended Posts



I'm trying to restore our SQL server backup files from the tape, but getting -102 error (Trouble communicating). I can restore any other files but SQL server bckup devices (.BAK). What's causing this? Is there a solution?


I would appreciate your help.


Thank you,

Can you try restoring an earlier version of the file? Since you can restore other files it sounds like the tape itself may have a problem. Have you cleaned the drive recently? Make sure the windows driver for the tape drive is disabled.
