The database you are trying to back up runs in Single User mode. It needs to be run in Multi User mode.


  1. Start the SQL Server Management Studio and connect to the Instance specified in the error message.
  2. Select New query, type:
    exec sp_who
  3. Press Execute.
  4. You will get a list of current sessions. Identify the session and type:
    kill <SPID>
    where <SPID> is the SPID of the session using the database
  5. Press Execute.
  6. Type: 
    exec sp_dboption 'Databasename', 'single user', 'FALSE';

    where <Databasename> is the name of your database
  7. Press Execute.
  8. Start the backup.
