Does sql server automatically determine where your tables are stored to in filegroups? I heard that after some time this can happen is this true? I am asking this because I heard that "If you add an additional file to an existing file group, you have no control over what data SQL Server will put in the new file."

I also want to know how to move tables into filegroups from an existing database in production use. I am only finding information on how to do so on new tables.

You tell it where to put the tables

) ON FileGroupName

To move an existing table, rebuild the clustered index ON FILEGROUPNAME
