Judging from the data you presented here, I see no reason why it should
occur.

But there are a few details missing:
o Check that the data file is set to unrestricted growth. If the file
set to a max of 4007 MB, it can autogrow 10% from 3.91 GB.
o Check the error message for which database the error occurs in. The
problem could be with tempdb.

Thanks for your reply. I didn't get this point at the time of fixing .
I added another data file and that is working perfectly without any
error. And I made that in group.
Thangs and Regards

I've been experimenting with filegroup backups. I currently "archive" old data by moving it into a different database. I thought I could try to use filegroups instead. That is "archive" old data into a read-only filegroup within the same DB. However, I ran into the following and thinking about nixing the idea. Opinions? a) MSSQL doesn't allow restoring a Filegroup as a new database. (MSSQL only allows restoring the entire database...

Hello, I have been trying to figure out how to temporarily change the max filegroup size of a SQL 2000 database I "inherited" when our DBA quit. I just need some breathing room until I can figure out how to properly archive and remove some filegroups. Here is the scenario, my filegroup is set to 20. Each filegroup is set to grow to 4096.
