SQL Database basics video

I’ve just uploaded a new video to YouTube that shows you how to detach and attach SQL databases via the SQL Management Console.

SQL Database Basics


Although only very short and simple in my experience I have found that many people tasked with administrating SharePoint (which relies on SQL) do not know how to perform these simple operations.


The detach and attach process is really handy if you want to manually move the SharePoint content bases to another location on the disk.


Subscribers to my SharePoint Guide will receive an extended video covering additional topics such as how to completely remove SQL databases as well as rename them. The Guide not only provides video tutorials but extensive notes. For more information about becoming a subscriber visit
