How to identify inactive SQL Databases

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I require a SQL Script or some other method for finding out which databases in a SQL Server are the "least" active (or completley dormant). I.e. my problem is that I have a number of databases left over after a few SharePoint installs (which are now long gone) all with cryptic serialized database names. I don't want to delete the wrong databases for those that are still active.
