Unable To Open .BAK Files For SQL Restore – SQL Server 2012

If you are trying to restore a SQL database in Microsoft SQL Server 2012, but are unable to open or even view the .BAK files, it may be because they are on a network share.

Microsoft SQL Server 2012 will only allow restores from .BAK files located on a drive local to the server

The fix is to copy the .BAK files to the SQL Server and select the local files to do the restore.
