2 . An very important thing is that : If original database and the target database are on the same server , you must change the restoration database files directories , or the restoration job will try to overwrite the original database files , that cause restoration job fails. just double clicks on the target file list , you can define new database directories.

3 . In most case , Backup Agent can create target directories if they dosen't exist.

4 . Do other required configuration ,then save and run the restoration job.
