CREATE DATABASE or ALTER DATABASE failed because the resulting cumulative database size would exceed your licensed limit of 10240 MB per database

Errors and Error Messages
Q. I am getting these errors on the server.

"CREATE DATABASE or ALTER DATABASE failed because the resulting cumulative database size would exceed your licensed limit of 10240 MB per database."

"Could not allocate space for object 'dbo.TT_Attachments' in database 'EasyProjects' because the 'PRIMARY' filegroup is full. Create disk space by deleting unneeded files, dropping objects in the filegroup, adding additional files to the filegroup, or setting autogrowth on for existing files in the filegroup."


Is this limited by my easy projects license or by MSSQLExpress?
If so what should I do?

Thanks,

 

A. It's an issue of your SQL Express db reaching its size limit - you have 1 of 2 options

1. You can move EP attachments from the database to a local disk to free up space, so only data is stored in the db:

 
 
Or
 
2. Upgrade your SQL Express edition to a full one.
