Hi,

Is possible that the SYSTEM DATABASES (TEMPDB, MASTER) could be in other drive diferent that c: ?

I know that users databases must be in other Partition diferent that OS, but what about the system databases?

If so , it's a good pratice ?

Regards
Pedro

The databases should never be on the C drive, unless you are talking about a small development machine.

Trouble is that the MS installer used to default to putting the system databases in

c:\program files\...

which is pretty unforgivable, and must have lead to many-a-mess

Hi,

In a production environment , if the system databases remain on c:, what is the best way to move them to other Partition drive ?

Can we detach system databases like we do users databases ?
