Hi There

Im having a problem with my DB where the Autogrow function is not working properly.

I have used the following script to grow the data file manually but it is taking extremely long to update.Its been 20 minutes so far.

Use Master
go
Alter Database EPR
Modify File
(Name=EPR_DATA ,Size=20000mb)
go

I also recieve this error when I try and run a transaction from my application

Could not allocate space for object 'Encounter' in Database 'EPR' Because the primary file group is full.

What are the implications of adding a new DAta File to the Databse.
Does the data now go into the new datafile once the primary one is full.
Will I looses any data if I add a new data file

does both data files get backed up when I back up the database.

additional space is available to the filegroup

no. data goes into that datafile immediately, distributing data as much as possible

>Will I looses any data if I add a new data file
no
