I hope someone can help me solve this weird problem I'm facing for 4 days.
I'm trying to restore the backup of Sharepoint 2010 web application. I'm using Windows Powershell command :
Restore-SPSite -identity http://servername:7070 - path D:\moss7070\moss7070.bak -force.
I've created an empty web application before I run the command. The command runs for around one hour to two hours before it shows this error:
Restore-SPSite : The site collection could not be restored. If this problem persists, please make sure the content databases are available and have sufficient free space. At line:1 char:15 + restore-spsite <<<< -identity -path <.bak> -verbose -force + CategoryInfo : InvalidData: (Microsoft.Share...dletRestoreSite:SPCmdletRestoreSite) [Restore-SPSite], SPException + FullyQualifiedErrorId : Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell.SPCmdletRestoreSite
The bak file is around 37 GB and I have 1.6 TERABYTE free space on the disk drive. I'm using SQL SERVER 2008 R2 Evaluation Version (full, not the express version). Database & SharePoint Users have full administration permissions.
What am I doing wrong?!
