  • Attachements from db to files??

    Hello all!

    I have a problem, i am running vb but in my db i see that attachements inside db is 1/2GB!!! The problem is that sql server have been very unstable with this big db.

    So my question is, how do i can convert all attachements which is in the database to files in one folder ??
    So after i delete them from the db and have a stable sql server like before...

    Is there any way to do this? And if there is a way to convert them, inside the posts the attachements links can be modified to work ok???

    Sorry for my bad english

    You can only do this in vB3 with out hacking.

    If your server is running slowly / unstably you should ask Eva2000 for a server tune up, granted your on a dedicated server.

      I am thinking upgrading in vb3 but i am afraid maybe because the db is very very big (600MB) if there is a problem when i turn to vb3....

      So, to sum up, you say if i upgrade to vb3, without a hack, i can convert all attachements from db to files??

      Thanks a lot for replying
