How to solve this problem I have with a restore (backup) file I made in SQL Server 2008?

Asked by Ranimi23 (1914points) March 31st, 2010

I have made a time ago a file backup in SQL Server 2005. Now, I am using SQL Server 2008. I made a restore to that file and everything went fine. But, every time I’m trying to add a new table to my DB I get this message I can’t understand why:

“Saving changes is not permitted. The changes you have made require the following table to be dropped and re-created. You have either made changes to a table that can’t be re-created or enabled the option Prevent saving changes that require the table to be re-created”

and I get in list only the new table I just added.

I don’t know what this means at all. I only added one table, no primary key, no connections, nothing else and it refuses to make the change and save it, so now I’m stuck and can’t change anything on my DB.

How can it be?
What may be the problem?
Please help and advise :-(

try to see if you have volume optimization enabled, it prevents certain changes from happening and really gives the user a hell of alot more trouble than it is worth.

@baxter , What is the volume optimization?
Where should I find it? Properties?

actually I misread the question, for some reason I thought it was backup exec. but I’ve had the same recurring issue on different SQL servers. See if this helps you
