    I had this problem on a VPS with SQL 2014 Express. There was not enough security permission to a do a restore from the default backup directory: C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL12.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQL\Backup (although backups worked fine)

    The error was: C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL12.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQL\Backup Cannot access the specified path or file on the server. Verify that you have the necessary security privileges and that the path or file exists.

    Actually, you can follow these steps to change the authority:Log in to SSMS using Windows Authentication Navigate to Security->Logins Either double Click, or Right Click and select Properties on the user you're interested in . In the "Select a page" box, select "Server Roles" Make sure that the "sysadmin" role is selected Press Ok to save the change and close the dialog Exit SSMS Reopen SSMS and login as the User you wanted, and you should now have sufficient Privileges

      if the database exists, membership of dbcreator role should be sufficient (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/t-sql/statements/restore-statements-transact-sql?view=sql-server-2017)

        One simple way is backup by using T-SQL

        Create a Full Database Backup using Transact- SQL or T-SQL to restore the database from .BAK file

        1. Type the BACKUP DATABASE statement which creates Full Database Backup using following specifications:

          RESTORE DATABASE AdventureWorks FROM DISK = 'C:\AdventureWorks.BAK'

          • Name of Database to backup
          • Place where to write the Full Database backup
          • The Syntax for full DB-backup is:
