something trivial and minor but relevant to my current db tasks.
My SQL db kept giving me a message about state of db error even though the database was there.. so at night I go into SQL management studio and for the primary db that I have on the external drive, I take the db offline and disconnect any live connections, and then turn off the drive. in the morning, I turn the dock on, and then go back into smss and bring the database back online. Just right click on DB and All Tasks | take on or off line.
the keep alive batch file I have on my desktop that runs is below:
dir c:\windows\temp > j:\temp.txt
timeout /t 60 /nobreak > nul
more to come..
