I want to start by saying I know virtually nothing about SQL Server.
I work for a website and have an old database of ours. It was exported in Sql Server 2008. It has 3 files an mdf file, a secondary data file, and a transaction log file.
When I try to attach I get an error, and the error is 5173 stating "One or more files do not match the primary file or the database." I have looked at the top 20 results for this error in a Google search and have found nothing. I just want to get in and look at some of the data, run a few basic queries. I looked into importing into mysql and that seems like a pain. Any suggestions or ideas?
