I support an application that uses SQL Server Express 2008 R2 as the DB for the less expensive edition of the product.
A new client has an older version of the more expensive edition and purchased the less expensive edition when they bought their upgrade. They then asked me to help with the upgrade.
The previous DB is mostly docs and was stored in SQL Server 2005 Workgroup. The backup is 15 GB.
Is there any way to convert that backup into SQL Server Express 2008 R2? I tried to use the apps Restore function and it didn’t work…
Thanks very much,
