SQL Error: Restoring backup error, Unable to open physical file


Msg 5120, Level 16, State 101, Line 1
Unable to open the physical file “C:\Download\TSQL2012.mdf”. Operating system error 2: “2(The system cannot find the file specified.)”.
Msg 5181, Level 16, State 5, Line 1
Could not restart database “TSQL2012”. Reverting to the previous status.
Msg 5069, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
ALTER DATABASE statement failed.



Just for database backup and restore testing purposes, I had deleted the master data file (.mdf) of TSQL2012 database then tried to access that database and I have got this error message.
