| I have created the file group for my database.First i took backup of individual file group(mdf and ndf) then I tried to restore only secondary(ndf) file group.I got error like
Restore failed for Server 'pcname\SQLEXPRESS'. (Microsoft.SqlServer.SmoExtended)
File 'regSQL_dat' was not backed up in file 1 on device 'D:\nvtndf.bak'. The file cannot be restored from this backup set.
RESTORE DATABASE is terminating abnormally. (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 3144)
When i tried to restore only primary file group i got the same error.
Can i restore individual file group? If possible then how?
