Interesting question Steve. I had no idea about this, except the connection of VARBINARY and FILESTREAM. Luckily was able to guess the correct answer :-)

I don't have idea about filestream but i'm sure other than IDENTITY property no other attributes will be copied to new table. So i guessed it should be varchar(max) but it was wrong , could have gone through the BOL before answering.

I am not surprised that SELECT ... INTO loses the FILESTREAM attribute. However, I was surprised to find that varchar(max) with FILESTREAM would be converted to varbinary(max).
So then I did a bit more research, and found that FILESTREAM is not even permitted with varchar(max) - so not really a surprise that all FILESTREAM columns get converted to varbinary(max), since that already was their data type! Hehe

Excellent question, thanks Steve - discovered this while doing an investigation for the implementation of FILESTREAM in my environment

Nice question.

I don't have idea about filestream but i'm sure other than IDENTITY property no other attributes will be copied to new table. So i guessed it should be varchar(max) but it was wrong , could have gone through the BOL before answering.

But why did you think the source type was varchar(max) filestream? varchar(max) isn't a BLOB type any more that text was it's LOB but not BLOB, so varchar(max) filestream doesn't exist.
