I have a backup file from a SPSite (backup.bak) and when i go to restore in another server i get this message:

"Your backup is from a different version of Microsoft SharePoint Foundation and cannot be restored to a server running the current version. The backup file should be restored to a server with version ’14.0.0.7123′ or later"

I have installed the identical patch version 14.0.7123.5000 in my server with the MS14-022 Patch (wss2010-kb2837588-fullfile-x64-glb.exe)

After, i have run the configuration wizard and the content database is upgraded with the exactly version 14.0.7123.5000.

When I tried restore the site get the same error message:

"Your backup is from a different version of Microsoft SharePoint Foundation and cannot be restored to a server running the current version. The backup file should be restored to a server with version ’4.0.145.0′ or later"

But what’s that? This is incredible!!!

Seem impossible restore my backup, please any idea!!

Two things if you are exporting / importing the site with .bak extension then sometime it cause the issue.

I would recommend, perform a fresh backup using the powershel.

Backup-SPSite http://server_name/sites/site_name -Path C:\Backup\site_name.bak

Once you move the .bak files to dev server, then run the restore command.

Restore-SPSite http://server_name/sites/site_name -Path C:\Backup\site_name.bak
  • Thanks Wagas, but your solution is very obiously and is the correct way, but dont work for me because my problem is between versions.. My problem is other, i have a backup file with .bak extension from backup operation in stsadm and this is not a problem. Thanks! – hector Jun 27 '14 at 11:49
