    The only way would be to restore to an edition of SQL Server besides the express edition, then delete the data that you don't need. Then shrink the database below the 10 GB limit then backup and restore to your express instance.

    If this is for a development machine look at getting a copy of SQL Server Developer Edition. It's usually about some dollar amount and doesn't have any limitations like database size. It's only limitation is that you can't use the instance for production use.
