Hello

I am running Office 2013, with BCM 2013 and Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 (SP2) - 10.50.4000.0 (Intel X86).

i am new to BCM and really appretiate all its features but stucked with two problems. Please assist.

1. How can I increase the attachment size for attaching files in "Comments" section with my BCM business contacts, and how can i know the current size limit.

2. I uninstalled default sql express version and fresh installed Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 (SP2) to increase my database size limit but BCM still shows database size limit at 4000 MB. I tryied to fix it by going to "Sql server management studio" > databases > "MySamallBusiness" > properties > Files > and increase the initial size to 4444 mb and now i am getting this error . Please check attach jpeg

I don't think you can change anything as far as the attachment size without editing the db - the limit would be the field limit. The error you see now is because Outlook thinks the database is oversized.

Did you restart Outlook after changing the db size?

Yes i did restart the sysem, infact i have restarted my computer a couple of times after that but its still same . It just doesnt seem to to grow and update size limit to 10GB.

Can you please provide some details on how to increase the attachment limit by editing db ? I am novice and new to BCM :)
