Hi, I am at SQL 2005 . we have a table that stores pdf files along with file id. it is of data type of image. we are in the process of archieving the old images and we need to find the size of individual file size in the row and then sum up and come with total size that we can possibly save. Select fileID , Datalength (Image_field) /1024 AS "SIZE_IN_KB" from table_name FileID Uniqueidentifier Image_Field image does not report the right size . NOT EVEN CLOSE. is there any work around... we are running out of san space.... thanks for your help.
