i'm so stressed. I can even hear the harddrive making noise.

my question again. if i back up the DAT file can up grade that DAT file.
and my other question is
is there any place to buy 6.5? microsoft does not sell it any more.
is there a desktop version of it i can down load?

do i am dead. i called microsoft ..they said "sorry we dont sell it anymore. you should have upgraded your system long time ago"

hey... can someone sell me a copy?
email me at maigono_gaijin2@hotmail.com

i dont think its smart to run an upgrade on a 6 year old computer that has not been turned off for 5 years.
what would you guys do?

i was thinking about that but ...what if it fails during upgrade? the last programmer made us lose 1 years worth of data. the risk of losing SQL server 6.5 with no CDs is too much. I want to be safe and keep the company running with no down time.
there is a chance that the upgrade might not take.

maybe i am thinking too much. oh well there is no hope for me it seems.

ahh so the the sql 2000 sever on the new box will just import the database and not shut down the 6.5 server?
