The site collection could not be restored

I have received the following error message while restoring the Site collection backup file in new sharepoint 2007 environment.

"The site collection could not be restored. If this problem persists, please make
 sure the content databases are available and have sufficient free space."


So i have done the following methods and restored the backup file successfully.

Resolutions:
1. Stop and restart the "Windows Sharepoint service Timer" and restart the IIS.
2. Open the SQL managment studio and select the properties of the sql server and select " connections" and uncheck “Use query governor to prevent long-running queries”. Also, set “Remote query timeout” to 0.

Finally restore the backup file. now it should be restored successfully.
