Hi,

ALTER DATABASE database_name
{
    <add_or_modify_files>
  | <add_or_modify_filegroups>
}
[;]

<add_or_modify_files>::=
{
    ADD FILE <filespec> [ ,...n ]
        [ TO FILEGROUP { filegroup_name } ]
  | ADD LOG FILE <filespec> [ ,...n ]
  | REMOVE FILE logical_file_name
  | MODIFY FILE <filespec>
}

<filespec>::=
(
    NAME = logical_file_name  
    [ , NEWNAME = new_logical_name ]
    [ , FILENAME = {'os_file_name' | 'filestream_path' } ]
    [ , SIZE = size [ KB | MB | GB | TB ] ]
    [ , MAXSIZE = { max_size [ KB | MB | GB | TB ] | UNLIMITED } ]
    [ , FILEGROWTH = growth_increment [ KB | MB | GB | TB| % ] ]
    [ , OFFLINE ]
)

<add_or_modify_filegroups>::=
{
    | ADD FILEGROUP filegroup_name
        [ CONTAINS FILESTREAM ]
    | REMOVE FILEGROUP filegroup_name
    | MODIFY FILEGROUP filegroup_name
        { <filegroup_updatability_option>
        | DEFAULT
        | NAME = new_filegroup_name
        }
}
<filegroup_updatability_option>::=
{
    { READONLY | READWRITE }
    | { READ_ONLY | READ_WRITE }
}
