Warning - restore dialog in SQL Server Management Studio 2012 changed

  
Hi

A colleague of mine here at OutSystems has just bumped into this problem, so I bring this here to alert the community. Microsoft changed the look of the Restore Database dialog in a way that it can be confusing for experienced DBA. New users will probably not be affected.

The change is regarding the order in which "source" and "destination" appear in the dialog.

SQL Server Management Studio 2008
                     


SQL Server Management Studio 2012
                   


The conclusion with this is: be extremely careful when reading SQL Server Management Studio dialogs to avoid producing the wrong results.

Cheers,

Hello Acácio,
Thanks a lot for those tips and warnings..
Sometimes we get stucked in some problems that we are not aware of them and problems of this kind I believe they happen a lot, mainly when we use new versions of the platforms/ frameworks/ etc..
Thank you for sharing..
