Hi,
New to MSSQL Administration. We have a maintenance plan configured to store to disk. But the plans does not state which disk. There are mdf file with the same name on two different drives on the same server. The properties of the DB state the data directory is the E drive but there is a mdf file with the same name on the C drive. Trying to determine if the C drive is where the main plan is storing to.
Thanks.

So you are looking at (from Sql Server Management Studio) the "management" folder then the "maintenance plans" folder and opening your maintenance plan?  It sounds like a backup job?  

With these two assumptions:
You should see a backup database task.  Double clicking that will show you what folder you are backing up to.

Thanks for your response robertq34.
After douple clicking the right pane shows three boxes pointing in this order:
Back up Database Task -> Maintenance Cleanup Task -> Maintenance Cleanup Task 1
Under "Back Up Database Task" the destination states "Disk". What disk?
Thanks.

Nevermind my last statement. Thanks. I found it.

within the "Backup Up Database Task" box right click on the clip board icon and then click edit. It shows up there.
