if it is enterprise edition, the maximum size will be 4GB, and for the rest the maximum depends up on the available disk space

There are limits to the sizes depending on which version you have/get.

See http://www.microsoft.com/sqlserver/2008/en/us/editions.aspx?pf=true for a listing of them.

>>if it is enterprise edition, the maximum size will be 4GB<<
I suspect you mean the Express Edition and not "Enterprise" and that applies only to SQL Server 2005.

>>SQL Server 2008R2 supports up to 10 GB of data<<
That depends on the Edition.  SQL Server 2008 R2 Express Edition supports up to 10GB, while all other Editions are limited by disk space.
