SSCE TMP database files

Posted By:      Posted Date: December 04, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server

I'm having a bit of trouble finding information related to usage of TMP temporary database files.

Specifically I'm trying to to determine when the SSCE engine would determine they are no longer used and delete them. We need to know whether we will need to manually remove the files.

I'm working with SSCE 3.5 SP2 on a desktop app, specifying the temp folder in the connection string.

Any insight?

Insert multiple files to SQL Database in VB

My files are being inserted but the byte array is showing as a 0x0000... etc for every file after the first inserted file. The first inserted image is correct. The database is set up as an Image type. The problem exists in the code here. Thank you in advance! Dim uploads As HttpFileCollection uploads = HttpContext.Current.Request.FilesFor i As Integer = 0 To (uploads.Count - 1) If (uploads(i).ContentLength > 0) Then Dim c As String = System.IO.Path.GetFileName(uploads(i).FileName) 'Dim upload As HttpPostedFile = uploads(i) If Not fileUpEx.PostedFile Is Nothing And _ fileUpEx.PostedFile.ContentLength > 0 Then Try If CallingTab >= "" Then Call UploadImage(c, uploads(i).ContentLength, uploads(i).ContentType, uploads(i).InputStream, _ strUsername, intSiteID, intCompanyID, strDocumentType, CallingTab, NewVersionNumber) Else lblStatus.Text = "Document Not successfully uploaded to the database!

Multiple Data Files Per Database Not Allocating

We recently read that I/O performance can be increased by creating multiple data files for a database: "As a general guideline, create one data file for each CPU" So went ahead and did this, and restarted the SQL engine, but still it is writing all data to the first file "Production_data_1". We would assume after we restarted it would reallocate the data across all four data files. Currently, the other three data files have 1GB of space allocated, but the engine is not writing data to the other three files. How can we distribute the existing data across all four data files? See a screenshot we took at: http://www.ftoperations.net/screenshot.png

Database snapshots do not work well with databases having multiple log files


It appears there is a bug in the implementation of database snapshots.

If you create a snapshot on a database with multiple log files:

Then restore from the snapshot:

then all of you log files, but one will disappear. As a result the backup command will fail with the following message:
Msg 3636, Level 16, State 2, Line 1
An error occurred while processing 'BackupMetadata' metadata for database id 12 file id 10.
Msg 3046, Level 16, State 2, Line 1
Inconsistent metadata has been encountered. The on

set up database with .bak files in SAL server management studio



I need to connect to 3 remote databases from my local machine and  restore 3 .bak files, one for each database.

Many thanks

Add Database through App_Data Error- Connections to SQL Server Files (*.mdf) require SQL Express


I am trying to add a new database via the App_Data Folder and I receive an error described below.

I had attached an mdf file to try to use it in SQL Server 2008 Developer and Visual Studio 2010, which was is included in a book's lesson.  Whenever I try to add a database within the App_Data Folder I get an error.

I can create a db by attaching an mdf via SQL Server Mgmt Studio, it connects fine, and I can see tables.

Mgmt Studio- Right Click Databases, Attach, Add, then once mdf is located:

The mdf file location, Database Name, Attach As, -- are all the same:


Do I need to change the Database Name?

Visual Studio- Server Explorer connects fine to mdf OR regular Database, I can see the tables.

However when I attempt to add ANY TYPE OF SQL SERVER DATABASE through the App_Data folder I receive this error "Connections to SQL Server Files (*.mdf) require SQL Server Express 2008 to function properly.  Please verify the installation of the component or download from the URl."

I tested this for both a normal dbo (non mdf) and the mdf.dbo I attached before, with the same error!

Im running XP SP3 w/ Visual Studio 2010 and SQL Server 2008 R2 Developer.  I had previously removed SQL Server Express.

Move the database files to different branches before replication?


Hi all,


I want to start a replication between 3 sites using Merge replication, 1<sup>st</sup> branch is the distributer and publisher and already has a database, the others are subscribers and they are new (No data yet). But the size of the database in the main branch is about 4 GB. So if I start the replication, 4 GB will be replicated which something I don’t want. Is there a way I can put the database in the other branches manually? So nothing will need to replicate at the first time. And then replication will take place.

Uploading .pdf files with FIle Upload control and then saving to database


Hi everyone!

I'd like to allow users to upload a .pdf file via the file upload control (if that's the best method), save the file to the db and then retrieve it so they can click on a link and open the .pdf they've uploaded.

I've been looking for a tutorial on how to do this but keep running into methods of saving the file directly on the server in a directory, not in SQL server  (using Linq and VB by the way)

Can someone please point me in the right direction on how to do this?   Thanks!

Max files in a single WSS 3.0 Database (SBS 2008 Server - Window Internal DB)


This site appears to indicate that the max documents per database is 32,767 :


This seems extremely small to me. Is that an accurate number? We have a customer with 300,000 documents and about 30 users. Is this going to be too much for a single DB?

Restoring database files


I am trying to restore a database file and, for some reason, SQL Server Management Studio isn't allowing me to restore the database.

I select everything I need to, including the option to overwrite the existing database (WITH REPLACE) and RESTORE WITH RECOVERY. I then get the following error:


System.Data.SqlClient.SqlError: File 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL\Data\CoreDB.mdf' is claimed by 'msphxx_index001'(3) and 'msphxx_data001'(1). The WITH MOVE clause can be used to relocate one or more files. (Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo)


What I've tried thus far, to no avail:

- deleting the database via Management Studio, closing all existing connections before doing so.

- confirming that the physical files are no longer located on the physical disk (C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL\Data)

- increasing physical disk size

- rebooting the server after deleting the database

- restored another DB on same SQL Server successfully


Even after all that, it still gives me the exact same error message. Please help :P

I'm having an incredibly hard time with this, I'm really new to it.  I'm creating a website for free web graphics and I would like to add data to my database whenever more files are added to my server.  I've found a way to list all the files in the directory:

            lblHeader.Text = "Files in " + FilePath;
        private void GetFiles()
