1) Is is possible to query SQL 2005 to see if any databases have a maxsize set? could you provide a syntax? ideally with how much free space is left until the DB hits that maxsize..

2) Is it only the database you set a maxsize for or is the same done for log files? If log files can the query above be tweaked to cover both?

3) If you do set a maxsize for a database - what would ultimately happen if the admin wasnt monitoring remaining space and it hit that maxsize and the admin hadnt added more capacity to the max size?

4) if you don't have a maxsize set, is the only real thing to worry about in terms of space management the free space on the drive on which the databases reside?
