Location of MSDE database
« on: December 04, 2008, 09:51:51 PM »
By error I posted this in the Server forum - it should be in the ADNM forum - and I have now posted there. Can the administrator please delete this post.  Thanks, TimG

I need to move the MSDE sql database from its location C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL$AVAST to D:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL$AVAST.
When I did the install of the ADMN sofware, I was able to install ADNM on D: but there was no opportunity to install the MSDE package on D: - it went into C:.
[Our computers all run the Faronics Deep Freeze software to keep the C: drive frozen, but with D: unfrozen.  This means that changes to anything on C: are lost when the system is rebooted.]

I saw the post about moving the database to another server, but I just want to move it to a different disk.
