There is a large amount of data in my MS Sql database which has expired. Can you please let me know if there is any way to export data and tables from my expired MS Sql database. Either to keep a backup or to export it and import it to a new database.

Its very difficult to populate that data which is present in that DB. Please help me out

what do you mean by "MS Sql database which has expired" ?

You are using trial license ?

If that expired, you can install the free Express Edition and attached the DB over (provided the DB is less than 10 GB)

What got expired ? DB does not get expired. Is it the 3rd party software that you are testing that got expired ?

What version of SQL Server are you using ?

DB does not get expired. You should still be able to access it via tools like SQL Server Management Studio

ideally yes. you need to check for the db files (mdf,ldf etc) which can copy to your location and attach it to a sql server instance which you install. (express edition is free which you may download)
