I use Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio Express on Windows 7.
Don't ask me how, but when I was erasing a database I no longer desired, I erased the 'Database' folder on the server.
Pitiful I know, but I am only learning how to use databases this year... and I'm not even learning it on MSSQL.
Every time I try to connect to a new instance, it is created without any folder to place databases and running a script that used to restore a database I have returns an error saying that the token 'RESTORE' is incorrect. This didn't happen before.
I've tried uninstalling SQL Server and SQL SMSE and re-installing. No matter how much I try to erase every residue of past installations, the new installation always recovers the state of the previous one, showing exactly the same server structure and database
How do I remake the entire server?
P.S. I'm curious as to why this information is stored in my computer, information that I am unaware of. Is the Server a part of Windows itself? Why can't I control the information the system stores and simply erase any evidence of a previous server so I
can create a new one?
