    Hello
    I want to move a log file from SQL server 2000 standard Ed to another drive. The SQL server DB is in simple recovery model. I don#%92t use SP_DETACH_DB and SP_ATTACH_DB concept. I wonder if there is some another solution for it.
    Thanks

    If this is in simple recovery mode, what do you want to do with the log file anyway?

    Then I‘m going to change the SQL server DB in full recovery model.

    What do you mean you "don't" use detach and attach? This sort of thing is PRECISELY what it is there for? Are you ideologically opposed to it?

    True and there is no other process or option to move the Log file alongwith data file, any process uses the same method of detach and attach.
