I have downloaded databasename.bak file from my hosting company, when i tried to restore that DB file in SQL server 2008 it is keep on giving me following error.
The media family on device 'C:\go4sharepoint_1384_8481.bak' is incorrectly formed. SQL Server cannot process this media family. RESTORE HEADERONLY is terminating abnormally. (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 3241)
According to this error and from following link http://www.sqlcoffee.com/Troubleshooting047.htm
It is clear that either file i am downloading is corrupt or it is getting corrupted on the way?
Any idea, why I am keep on receiving this error? I tried almost all ways but unable to fix this problem, please help me.
