In my rush to migrate over to my Dell XPS 720, I neglected to perform an application level backup of the SQL data I use with Microsoft's Office Accounting 2007 and Outlook Business Contact Manager. However. I am happy to report that after a little research, database file portability does work with SQL Server 2005 and Express.
The process involves, creating and attaching the database. I did this by restoring a previous application level backup using the data tools in Office Accounting 2007 matching my previous database name. I then shut down the SQL Server services, copied my database's Master Data File (.MDF) and Log Data File (.LDF) from for my Acronis backup. Restarted the SQL services and accessed my current using Office Accounting.
This is a great feature of SQL server...Although the configuration method is different Exchange 2007 also allows for database portability of its mailboxes.
I am pretty much back up and running on my new XPS 720, so far I am very impressed with its performance...I did have to upgrade the BIOS and update the nvidia drivers but so far the Dell support has been very good.
