}
[;]

<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
