We have a customer who has performed a Business Contact Manager install on a server using the users folder as the default location of the associated files and database.

The C: drive where the Profiles folder is located is filled to a critical level and we need to make space.

We would like to move the SQL Express Database associated to Business Contact Manager but keep it intact.

Can anyone suggest how we can do this?

Thanks

Thanks for the post. The customer may have no option as they are running out of drive space.

We have SQL resources in our organisation who might be able to perform this if we can directed to structure and steps etc.

Thanks

Well, the database is pure SQL, so once you move it, outlook/bcm should find it no problem, as they look for it in SQL - sql needs to know where the file is. I don't know of any step-by-step tutorial on this as microsoft does not recommend it. AFAIK, there is no special process needed to move it over moving any other SQL db.

Um, don't you want to close outlook, detach, move, and reattach the db, then reopen outlook?
