Unanswered: Please help me transition from SQL Trial Server to MSDN Developer Edition
Hi. I'm a relatively new SQL server developer. Actually, I just started my job at the beginning of december. Being new to SQL I had purchased a few books to do some home based instruction before beginning my job. One of the books came with the SQL server tral edition which lasts for 3 months.
Just yesterday my trial copy stopped working, I'm assuming because the three months have come to a close. My boss boss has since given me a MSDN copy of the developer edition which I have succesfully installed.
All is well except for one thing. Some of the work I was doing is in the default instance of SQL server, which is the trial version I can no longer access. I didn't uninstall the trial first because I though doing so may also delete the databases I was working on.
Is there any way that I can retrieve the databases that I was working on in the trial version? Or are those lost forever now that it expired?
A huge thanks to anyone who might be able to help out, Matt
