I have a situation that a database has missing from a system running MSDE. I dont know if it was an acident or not. Never the less I was convinced that a .mdf file could not be deleted when the sql service was rinning, so I tried some tests and, surprise, I could delete several databases in that MSDE system. Not convinced I tried other tests even in machines running SQL server and I got the same results.
Is it a configuration? Is a bug? Is it normal?
