This is a newbie questions. Can someone give the general concept of when and why you would check this option while doing a restore (Force Restore Over Existing Database)?

I did a search here and looked in books online and couldn't find a defination or good explanation.

You help is greatly appreciated.

Force restore over existing database means if a database already exists with the same name that you are restoring, then overwrite it. If one doesn't exist, just create it. It's the same as WITH REPLACE if you did the RESTORE DATABASE command from Query Analyzer.
