Note: The SharePoint plug-in is not supported in V7. For documentation detailing how to back up SharePoint in V7, visit the Partner Area.


When restoring SharePoint data using the SharePoint plug-in, an error is seen:
[Sharepoint Plug-in] Problem during import of Content Database QA_WSS_Content: Logical file 'QA_WSS_Content' is not part of database 'QA_WSS_Content'. Use RESTORE FILELISTONLY to list the logical file names. ,RESTORE DATABASE is terminating abnormally.


The Content Database has not been deleted from SharePoint, only the reference to it has been removed. SharePoint does not delete the SQL database itself, it must be manually deleted prior to restoration.


Ensure that the SharePoint Content Database is fully deleted from SQL itself before attempting to restore it.
