SQL Server migration
Hi, I am pretty new to the SQL Server DB. We are working on a project where in the db is migrated from SQL Server 2000 to SQL Server 2005. I was told that the migrated databases will consume more disk space on SQL Server 2005. Is that true? If so, what is the reason for that and how can we prevent it? Thanks in advance. Vidukarth

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

No, it’s not true. (Well the database might need a couple of Megs extra, but that’s it.)

SQL Server 2000 and SQL Server 2005 use the same format when storing the data, so the data doesn’t need to be changed. When upgrading the database from SQL Server 2000 to SQL Server 2005 only the meta data about the tables is changes. The actual table data is left untouched.
