  3. At the following screen, enter *.@DB at the prompt for Named.
  4. At the Look In prompt, select Local Disk or C: and click Find or Search Now.
    Note: Search all hidden files and folders by selecting the checkbox in More Advanced Options.
  5. Delete each match found.
  6. Run a manual backup. Online Backup will then connect to the server and retrieve an updated @DB file.
  7. Try to restore the online backup again, the issue should be resolved.
