Is it possible to take a backup of a database that has multiple files within the primary file group (10 total in this example) and restore that backup to a new database that has only one file in the primary file group? THanks, Lee

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

No. The restored database will have the same number of files as the database had when it was backed up. In addition the files will be the same size.

If you wish to reduce the file count you will need to do this after the database has been restored.
