Hi to all,

I'm trying to increase my space allocated for my db and its not working... First off I have it checked "unrestricted file growth"...

Are both your Data Files and Transact Logs set to unrestricted growth?

I will only tell you how to do it, not do it for you.
Unless, of course, you want to hire me to do work for you.

In SQL Server Exrpess (MSDE) you are restricted to a 2GB database size. As far as I know SQL Server 2000 has no limit on the amount of space you can use for your database's. One of the resident SQL Gurus may be able to help you better.

There actually is a limit on database size: it's 1,048,516 Terrabytes.

The log file is limited to 4TB in size.

One could argue that with limits like those, there really is no limit, as Doug suggests...
