How to Fix Restore & Overwrite Database Issue

I'm making this blog as sort of my repository also for all my learnings in becoming a Web Developer (someday - change career?) so I'll try my best to document those things.

This one is what I encountered just today when trying to restore a database. The error says that the back-up database file cannot be restored over an existing file. (see screenshot below)

database restore failed
(Unable to restore database - click image to enlarge)

So to fix this, all you need to do is just go to the Options menu and then select the Overwrite to an Existing Database. (screenshot below)
