One of the greatest weaknesses of Visual Basic Programmers is that they will learn to do a many useful things fairly quickly, and then they will stop learning anything.

comment What flavors are in Mountain Dew?
1. Thanks for your response. 2. Just because you answered with a recipe doesn't mean I asked for one :) (equal amounts of orange, lemon and lime + zest, sweeten to taste would have been a 'fair' answer)

technically not 'restoring a backup' but it does accomplish the goal of moving data from server[new] to server[old].
