User Action

To resolve this warning, view the backup set to determine which log files were affected. Consider the following after determining which log files were affected:

  • If the missing log files are not part of the backup set, remove the files that are not part of the backup set and perform the restore process again.

  • If the missing log file is contained in the backup set, restore the missing file.

Data can be lost when these steps are not followed. If the problem persists, contact Microsoft Product Support Services.
