Hello all,

not sure if I'm on the right thread but if not please do point me to the correct one.

basically I have a script that run every end of the month to do a backup of a database (Detach, Mount a new, and move the database to a new location) bu since this month this is coming back with an error when running it. as far as i know nothing has changed since two or three months ago but this is not longer working.
Assistance is really needed. here.

Here is my code but this is now coming back with


Msg 5105, Level 16, State 4, Server PRITL1, Line 1
Device activation error. The physical file name
'E:\SQL\MSSQL\Data\Syslogd.mdf' may be incorrect.

Nothing has changed at all since the last few months, not even updates.

Syslogd_Data.mdf and Syslogd_Log.ldf on my E:\SQL\MSSQL\Data\ hence the script is looking onto the Syslogd*.* and it did work since at least 4 months .
