Have you ever had a SQL database .bak file on a server and you needed to restore this .bak file on another SQL server? Some may say that you can just copy the .bak file to the SQL server machine then start restoring the database. Ok, this will work but sometimes due to some restrictions you may not be able to copy the .bak file due to not enough disk size or access issues or other issues. Then, you will not be able to restore the database because the .bak file is found on a remote server, totally a different machine than the SQL server machine. Fortunately, you can do it. Read this article to know how to do it.
