Need help restoring database

I have just installed a new server with a new domain.

 

I have a new login, now that I am logging on to a new domain (myco.local)

 

I have backed up the Act 2008 database to a Public folder while using my old login.

 

The Backup was not password protected when created.

 

I start Act while logged in with my myco.local login.

 

I start the Restore function and navigate to the Public Folder.

 

When I select the backup file it stops and tell me I do not have Rights or Permission to open the file.

 

I am an Administrator with both logins (old and new)

 

The Server OS is 2008 R2, Desktop is Vista Business SP2.

 

What do I need to do to get this file restored???

Re: Need help restoring database

OK, fixed this.  Even though I could log on to the domain, I need to create a local user with the domain login name.  After that, all's well.
