I'm quite new to SP and while trying to restore a site collection (same version) to a new area I get the another site collection already exists, choose a new url or use -Force error. Which would be fine if I wasn't already using -Force.
I assume that I am forgetting something/leaving something out when I run the cmdlt.
What I enter is as follows:
Restore-Spsite -Identity http://<urlname> -Path C:\backup.bak -Force
The above is being run in the sharepoint management shell.
Update Also if this changes anything I am trying to restore the / of the server
