I've been working with Visual studio 2008 and created a sql database in the app_data folder. The tutorial I was following demonstrated how to attach to the database with Management Studio Express.

I am unable to attach the database in my instance of sql server 2005 express because the Locate Files browser (Databases | Attach ... | Add | Locate Database Files) won't open subfolders in my \Documents and Settings folder. The files are located down in the \My Documents\Visual Studio 2008\Websites folder.

All the files were created within my user profile which has admin priviliges.

Thanks for any help.

"All the files were created within my user profile which has admin priviliges" what do you mean by this? did you "created" the database files under the ..\My Documents\Visual Studio 2008\Websites folder?

Assuming not and you just copied the files there I suggest you move them anyway in a different location than your "\My Documents\Visual Studio 2008\Websites folder"
Just create a new folder on a LOCAL or SAN drive and not network drive attached to your server and try to attach them again.

KENNY-PC\SQLServer2005MSSQLUser$KENNY-PC$SQLEXPRESS

and click log on to select local system account. I restart my computer it works.
