Recently, I compressed my hard drive to get more disc space. After that was complete, I tried to start my Chiro 800O and I got a pop up box stating that my "SQL Service is not running. Please ensure that it is running." I have windows xp and I am stumped on how to start the SQL service.

SQL Server does not support data files that have been compressed.

hi

1. cancell compression of the folder that holds the sql server datafiles
   * as  acperkins sais "SQL Server does not support data files that have been compressed."

2. start the sql server service using command : net start mssqlserver
   OR use the services on the control panel / administrative tools and start the service.

Thank you so much for replies. A couple of things:1) how do I cancel the compression? I uncompressed the HD(or so I think) and the problem i still there. 2) Aaron- I did what you mentioned and I states that the requested service has been started. Any thoughts?

1.  Reverse what you did.  Right click on the SQL Server Data folder, Properties, Advanced, un check "Compress contents to save disk space", click Ok.

I restarted and nothing changed. ACPerkings: The SQL server data folder, I'm assuming, is within the chiro 8000 folder called 'PM_CHIRO_log.LDF' or the PM_Chiro.MDF file. Both of these state they are SQL server database files. When I right click on them and try to uncompress,  it states that it is being used by another process.

You are right, I failed to include a step.  Let's try it again:
1.  Reverse what you did.  Stop the SQL Server service. Right click on the SQL Server Data folder, Properties, Advanced, un check "Compress contents to save disk space", click Ok. Start the SQL Server service.

ACPERKINS: Thank you so much.  I did exactly what you said and it finally worked. I don't know how to pay you back, but maybe I'll eat at a Perkins' restaurant(if they're still around) to repay you(joking). Thank you again, you are a blessed person.
