I'm getting the error "database msdb cannot be opened due to inaccessible files or insufficient memory" when I open SQL management console and try to access the databases.  How do I fix this? Using, Windows server 2008 64 bit.  There is plenty of ram 8gig and 36 gig free HD space.  I also opened it as Administrator

Have you tried to restart the server since the problem apppeared? Is this a new server and new install (meaning it never worked prior) or an existing installation that previously worked. Any major upgrades? Updates? Installs? Etc... in the environment?

Fix/Solution/WorkAround:
1) If possible add more hard drive space either by removing of unnecessary files from hard drive or add new hard drive with larger size.
 
2) Check if the database is set to Autogrow on.
 
3) Check if the account which is trying to access the database has enough permission to perform operation.
 
4) Make sure that .mdf and .ldf file are not marked as read only on operating system file system level.

Where is the "auto grow" setting?  I see "Auto Shrink" which is set to false.
