Saluting all Gurus,

Having to move 2 databases

    FROM SQL 7 (production db, under 1G, no jobs, no DTS, less than 10 users )
    TO SQL 2005 (brand new server, used initially as development, will become production after all is tested).

What would you recommend between “Backup/Restore” and “Detach/Attach”?

Just that you can see where i come from: i rarely do db admin, i'm more familiar with development.
Please accept my apologies for the double posting. I’m new to the forum and the burning folder caught my eye, as it looks related to my problem (

Thank you very much,

After restore you need to map the orphan users.
