I keep getting this odd error message in SQL Server 2012 when I'm trying to restore a backup that was made from a previous version. Here's the error message I'm getting:
System.Data.SqlClient.SqlError: Directory lookup for the file "C:PROGRAM FILESMICROSOFT SQL SERVERMSSQL.1MSSQLDATAMYDB_ABC.MDF" failed with the operating system error 3(The system cannot find the path specified.). (Microsoft.SqlServer.SmoExtended)
What should I do?

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

You need to check the security permissions on the folder you are trying to backup to. Make sure the service account (Network Service) has write permissions. It may well not do.
