Install sql2005 wrongly in C drive and wanna move to D

4 New Member
I was upgrading a instance from SQL2000 to SQL2005. During SQL2005 setup I accidently allow the files to be installed in C drive, but I should have them all installed in D drive.
My databases are still sits in D drive, but other files (Management studio, analysis service, etc.) all sits in C drive.
Is there anyway that I can move SQL2005 from C to D drive?
I thought of uninstalling current SQL2005, install it back and load current database to the new sql2005. However I dont have all the passwords of the users. Is there any method that I can solve the problem without removing current users?
Many Thanks,

Hi, I am trying to find a VB way that would create a folder on all existing drives - the folder name would be the same on each drive. ie c:\backup, d:\backup, etc. But the folders would only be created if they don't already exist, and if the drive happens to be one a folder cannot be created on (ie a cdrom drive) it would just be skipped without the code generating any errors. your help on this would be most appreciated. jenny

Any assistance is appreciated. I would like to know if there is a way to specify the path for database log files to be located during the SQL2005 Standard installation. Under the Advanced button there is the ability to specify a different path for data files but nothing for logs. Thanks in advance, John

I've created quite a few .Net apps we use locally and I generally just publish them as ClickOnce applications to a network drive.

We have an installed site with two SQL2005 servers (workgroup, SP2). At the publisher we recently (yesterday) bulk inserted about 2million lines into a table from a third server that's going to be part of the replicating group. However, since importing these records (using 'Import Data' to get the data in and then running a no-change update to make replication aware of them) the performance has become dreadful. The hard-drive is swamped...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention.
