Hi Friends,

Let us assume am having 2 data files one mdf and one ndf. I have stopped the autogrowth of mdf. Is there a way to find in which data file the particular table exists.


Thanks in advance.

A table doesnt exist on a data file, it exists on a file group.

Are the MDF and NDF in different file groups or are they both in the primary filegroup?

CASE idxz.[index_id]
WHEN 0 THEN 'HEAP'
WHEN 1 THEN 'CLUSTERED'
ELSE 'NON-CLUSTERED'
END AS index_type,
filz.[name]
FROM sys.indexes idxz
INNER JOIN sys.filegroups filz
ON idxz.data_space_id = filz.data_space_id
INNER JOIN sys.all_objects objz
ON idxz.[object_id] = objz.[object_id]
WHERE idxz.data_space_id = filz.data_space_id
