I'm using Redgate Backup 6 with SQL 2008 and I have a restore that keeps failing. After it fails it keeps the database in the "Restoring" state. I receive the following message.

2/5/2010 3:00:24 AM: SQL error 3013: SQL error 3013: RESTORE DATABASE is terminating abnormally.
2/5/2010 3:00:24 AM: SQL error 3283: SQL error 3283: The file "sysft_Name" failed to initialize correctly. Examine the error logs for more details.
2/5/2010 3:00:24 AM: Changed database context to 'master'.

    Hello Jon,

    I would recommend having a look at the SQL Server error log, because you more than likely have a problem with the SQL Server or a hardware problem. I think this error happens when SQL Server is trying to allocate space for the filegroup containing your full-text catalog.
