To move a FILESTREAM-enabled database
In SQL Server Management Studio, select New Query to open the Query Editor.

Copy the following Transact-SQL script into the Query Editor, and then select Execute. This code takes the
USE [master] EXEC sp_detach_db [Archive]; GO
Create the folder
C:\moved_location, and then move the files and folders that are listed in step 2 into it.
Copy the following Transact-SQL script into the Query Editor, and then select Execute. This script sets the
CREATE DATABASE [Archive] ON PRIMARY ( NAME = Arch1, FILENAME = 'c:\moved_location\archdat1.mdf'), FILEGROUP FileStreamGroup1 CONTAINS FILESTREAM( NAME = Arch3, FILENAME = 'c:\moved_location\filestream1') LOG ON ( NAME = Archlog1, FILENAME = 'c:\moved_location\archlog1.ldf') FOR ATTACH; GO
