Use orginal paths in "Filegroups and Files" Restore GUI

When I use the SQL Backup 5.x Restore Wizard, the Filegroups and files section of step 2 appears to set the paths to whatever is in the Database Data/Log paths set on the server. It would be nice to at least have the option to use the original paths for each of the files. I have a database with 11 files, including the transaction log, and I have to reset each of them to the appropriate disk whenever I restore the database.

If this is already an option please tell me where it is! :)

    There isn't an option to change the paths easily at this time. I have entered an enhancement request for this, ref. SB-3428. It will be up to the project managers to decide if this will be included in a future release.

    Thanks for bringing this to our attention.
