    Unanswered: Shrink or move tempdb

    One of my boxes was built with all of the system databases on the C:\ drive, and tempdb is up to 2 GB and there is no room left on the drive

    It should have been installed on the D:\ drive

    I've never had to do this before, mostly because I never install sql serevr on the c partition

    Any war stories or suggestions

    I moved tempdb on a system two or three months ago. Pretty painless, but of course you know enough to make backups first.

    I just googled the subject and found some instructions.
    If it's not practically useful, then it's practically useless.

    i think brett's got it backwards. too amny rita's at lunch again.
    “If one brings so much courage to this world the world has to kill them or break them, so of course it kills them. The world breaks every one and afterward many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry.” Earnest Hemingway, A Farewell To Arms.

    Was there a reason to avoid the MSDN solution?
