Hi all,
I am going to install a new mid-size SSD with Windows 7 (possibly 8) in my desktop to be the new boot drive. SQL server 2005 Express is currently installed on my 2TB HDD, which I would like to still use as a secondary drive D for my data.
Will SQL server still run from drive D (which contains all current system and data files)? If not, what do I have to change?
