Getting the folowing error when trying to restore a database. I am using Sql Backup 5.3.

    The error suggests that the file is incomplete or corrupted.

    If this file was copied, I would suggest comparing against the original file e.g. using a MD5 file checksum generator. I would also check if any errors were recorded during the creation of this backup file.
