4GB limit on SQL 2008 express?

    Question

  • Hi Guys,

    I had a SQL2005 express running a database around 4 GB and this was a limit, so i upgraded it to SQL 2008 Express, but im still getting alert about database is near the limit 4GB? as far as i understood, the limit on SQL2008 express is 10 GB? how can i check this? or maybe i need to do something with database?

  • There is still 4 GB limit on individual database size in SQL 2008 express.

    However, you need to use SQL Express 2008 **R2** to get 10 GB limit on database size.
