RESTORE SPSITE 0x80070003 Site Path Error


When restoring a site collection from another farm, which was an older version of CU / Patch, this error occurred.

Optional workaround if you do not want to update the other farm:

Create a test web application in the new battery

In SQL, restore the original database with the site collection that you want to restore.

Upgrade ID SPContentDatabase <ID GUID>

SPSite backup – Identity “” – Path E: \ contosobackup.bak

Restore SPSite ‘’ -Path E: \ contosobackup.bak –Force
