When trying to restore a database using the Blackbaud Management Console you may receive the following message:
An error occurred trying to restore [databasename]. File [filename] cannot be restored over the existing [file/path]. Reissue the RESTORE statement using the WITH REPLACE option to overwrite the pre-existing files, or WITH MOVE to identify an alternate location.
To resolve this issue:
Detach the database If it is currently attached to the Blackbaud Management Console.
Move the database files (.mdf & .ldf) to a different location from the path listed in the error message.
