NAV 2009 R2 Localized for Russia - Error while restoring

Hi all,

I need to do some test on the NAV 2009 R2 database localized for Russia.

I have downloaded a copy of the database from, but when I try to restore it, I get this error:


System.Data.SqlClient.SqlError: The media family on device ‘D:\backup\database.fbk’ is incorrectly formed. SQL Server cannot process this media family. (Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo)

For help, click:

Program Location:

at Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.ExecutionManager.ExecuteWithResultsAndMessages(String cmd, ServerMessageEventHandler dbccMessageHandler, Boolean errorsAsMessages)
at Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.BackupRestoreBase.ExecuteSqlWithResults(Server server, String cmd)
at Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.Restore.ReadMediaHeader(Server srv)
at Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.SqlManagerUI.BakDevMediaContents.InitMediaInfo(Restore sqlRestore)
at Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.SqlManagerUI.BakDevMediaContents.InitProp()

I tried with SQL Server 2005 Standard Ed., SQL Server 2008 Developer Ed. x64 and SQL Server 2012 Standard Ed. x64.

Can anyone help me?

Many thanks,

Gennaro Borriello.
