Hi
I have an MS SQL 2000, which I use for development. I accidentaly deleted some files(I guess so) of the database,

so please give me some tips?

Thanks

1) Do you have a backup of Northwind that you can restore over the existing Northwind?

2) Do you have another SQL Server installation with Northwind?  If so, you can take a backup of that db and restore it over the damaged Northwind.

Go to the directory c:\program files\microsoft sql server\mssql\install or wherever you installed SQL Server.  There you will find a SQL script called instnwind.sql.  This is a script that drops and recreates Northwind.  You can run it from Query Analyzer.
