    Unanswered: Primary file is full

    We set the database to : automatically grow file, unstricted file growth, grow by 10%.
    As I understand it will automatically grow, why we recieved error message like primary file full.

    How big is the datafile now? And is it sitting on a volume that is formatted with FAT32 or NTFS?

    How about, like, the actual error message...

    The physical order of data in a database has no meaning.

    ALert

    Thanks,

    What I want to do now is to set an alert that when the database file is 90 % full, not log file, then send an email.

    I didn't see there is an alert like this in the sql event alert, do I need to define it, can I do it in EM?

    Also wondering when the system extended the database, when it's full or when it has some percent left?

    Thanks

    Search on the term "autogrow" in Books Online, and you should find this in an article titled "Physical Database Files and Filegroups":

Growth then occurs using a round-robin algorithm.
