I used the following query to create a snapshot.

create database [adventureworks_snapshot_0900] on
(name = [adventureworks_data], filename='C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL
as snapshot of [adventureworks];

but I am getting the following error when I run this query.

Msg 5127, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
All files must be specified for database snapshot creation. Missing the file "chf1".

When I checked data folder, it doesn't have chf1 file.  Why do I need this file?  and How can i fix this error?
