Hello all,

I am installing SQL Server 2005 on our server and have researched with no success on how to redirect the Data Files and Log files to a different drive, e.g. D: drive. In SQL Server 2000 you specified where you wanted to place the LOG files and Data files upon Setup.

I have looked everywhere in SQL Server 2005 install and cannot find where I can tell it to place the Data and Log files. Please point me in the right direction.

Your help is greatly appreciated,

Dan

When you get to Feature Selection Screen (advanced options), Expand the database services item, and select the datafiles item. Click browse, and place them wherever.

Note that it will append subfolders to your path for:

...\MSSQL.n\MSSQL\xxx

So probably best to just give it a root path!
