MSDE a memory hog….. Who da thunk…not me….
Dear Susan Bradley,
After extensive research and monitoring, it has been determined
that the resource used by SQL express engine causes a dramatic
performance decrease for the server. Futhermore, it creates
security issues for the server. Unfortunately, we are forced
to discontinue support for SQL Express database engine on
March 19, 2008. For all customers using SQL Express engine,
please move your database to a SQL 2005 environment. The easiest
way is to use “attach” function through the
“control panel -> database -> mssql admin” section to
attach your .mdf and .ldf file. If you need further assistance,
please feel free to contact our help desk support staff. Thank you.
