Hi there,

You have at least two alternatives:

1) use the database attached to SQL Server Express. For information about changing your connection string, check out Appendix B

2) Detach the database and then move it to App_Data and update your connection string. To see where the physical files are located before detaching, open the properties dialog for your database in SQL Server Management Studio and look in the File category. In the Path column you see the folder where the file are stored. Then close that dialog, right-click your database and choose Tasks | Detach.

Hope this helps,
